    I think there are two way to tell if the shield has been put in. First, from the back find a place where you can shine a light so you can see the tank. If you can also see the back of the seat cushion they you don't have the shield. If you can't tell you could remove the back seat. It's not hard and I think it only takes about 3 or 4 screws. I've had mine out before. Anyway you should see the fire shield because you can't see the take if it's there.

    Then you can take it by a dealer and have them check. If it's needed they will likely have to order it anyway so you can schedule when to have it installed.

    I would say that if its ceen running good since 99 then i would not be to concern with recall issues

    I just bought a '99 Civic that only had 23,000 miles on it. How can I find out if the recall was performed or not?

    Corona Honda has been willing to do many of my repairs. Including the recall. Apparently they service some for the city as well. . But, they said they could not do a tank inspection.

    Galpin Honda in Los Angeles is now certified to work on the GX. There are a number of dealers in the LA that are certified as well. Honda's customer site for the GX in "dealer locator" will get you there.

    My civic is a gx. The question was, can the recall be done by a non gx dealer. I think that siai47 answered that.
    Thanks

    Of course, if you intend to intentionally burn your GX, you won't get the recall work done, and if you don't plan to intentionally burn your GX, you probably won't need it.

    I had mine installed by a non GX dealer---no problem. In fact they were really excited to actually see a GX.

    This is not an over the counter part, like a key, or lic plate frame. Here at my dealership they were only ordering them by (and for) the GX's by vin #. I don't know that it's the same everywhere, but you could check around.

    Can the blanket be installed at a non ngv honda dealer, or do you have to have the blanket installed at a ngv honda dealer?

    Here is the link to what happened to cause this recall. It wasnt in a garage but in a parking yard.

    My experience at Walnut Creek Honda went smoothly-

    I called for appointment, they ordered the part, it came in 2 days - this was back in January - scheduled the job for a Saturday, all went as planned. There was a little residual grime on the upholstery and some spray foam (like the gap filler stuff for weatherproofing) on the exterior and a little on the upholstery. Other than that, all went well - and I ran into 2 other GX owners while at the dealer and chatted with the sales guy - (they are selling these about as fast as they get them). One guy has two GX's, likes getting better prices on his home heating gas plus his NGV.

    "Then the service adv. told me said " "Sorry we do not have the parts and we will not be getting them until sometime in March".
    Translation : Dealers don't make any real money on warranty and recall work , so unless you are also in for some customer pay work , please go somewhere else.

    The parts take 2 business days at any so. cal dealer.

    Another question: if you had a 3600 fill at station "A" and a 3000 fill at station "B" and station "B" is $1.00 cheaper per gallon but station "B" is 4 miles out of your way. Which station would you use?
    Matt
    It takes quite a lot of extra electricity and equipment wear to get the extra # of pressure, and many would chose the 3000# for $1.00 less. Often, we pay full price and get 2800# out of the 3600 dispenser anyway. I would think $0.25 per gge would be a fair cost diff.
