Hey gang, CNGchat needs your help!

For over a decade we have enjoyed providing this little corner of the Internet for folks to discuss all things natural gas vehicles. It is the largest forum of its kind: with some 70,000 posts on over 11,000 topics. But with continued low gasoline & diesel prices and strong automaker support for electric vehicles, consumer interest in CNG has dropped considerably, and with it has visitor traffic here. As a result, Google ad revenues no longer cover hosting fees.

If you find CNGchat to be a useful resource then please consider making a modest donation to support keeping this remarkable pool of knowledge available to the alternative fuels community. Thanks!

    Impressive Fuel Economy

    Hello all!
    When I bought my GX a few weeks ago, I was expecting to save money on the $ / gallon but not as much with the economy. I've filled up five or six times and have averaged a bit over 40mpg on my mostly freeway commute with a little traffic. Really impressed with the economy and am loving the price ($2.18 last time). My current work assignment has me driving an additional 150-200 miles per week so 54 cents back at 6 cents per mile actual cost will help cover the low cost of the car. Speaking of the low cost, my 2011 one owner, extra clean GX with 100K miles, was $6,200. That is cheaper than the cost of the CNG option when it was new....

    Does that have the compressor cost figured in? Because $.05 per mile is like paying $2 a GGE and getting 40 MPG.

    I came at this a bit different. I installed submeters on my FMQ , keep a spreadsheet and over 150,000 miles on my 09 GX the fuel cost a bit over $.05 per mile

    My $1800 01 GX is hanging right around 40 mpg on 1.99 fuel. I would have been happy with high 20's mpg. This thing amazes me.

    I see you are in Utah. Give Derek a call at Clean Fuels - he is a straight shooter:

    There are often GX's on KSL classifieds too.

    Welcome to CNGchat, Andrey.
    Some great deals are out there on the natural gas (GX) Civics. The 2012 and newer ones have even better fuel economy and range. Enjoy!

    My best ever was 43mpg all hwy. I was babying it the whole time and to get there I needed to be hyper focused on my technique.
    i usually average about 38-40 on a 09 civic fueling at the same location, time of day.
    Good luck out there!
