    Re: Plumbing for extra tank in civic gx

    Scott, I am having a hard time believing you were able to place cylinders into a 1999 GX underbody without violating NFPA-52 Section 6.3

    Cylinders & valves must be shielded with minimum 9 inches road clearance when tires are deflated and cannot be located ahead of the front axle or behind the rear bumper attachment.

    Please post photos here of the installation.

        Honda America Corp: Are you hearing this? It sounds like there is a demand for something you could supply.

        It would be great if Honda could offer a factory-installed extended range (ginormous or extra tank) option on the GX. This way the GX could move beyond the "fleet vehicle" stigma and be cross-country capable. I know I would pay for that. Sounds like many others would, too.

          Scott,

          I don't know if your PM to John included the pics he was requesting, but I think all of us on the forum would be interested to know if you were able to successfully install a tank under a Civic and meet NFPA requirements. Please post pics of your install. If nothing else, you can get free advice from the experts on the forum on how to make you install safe.

                  Carl doesn't post on the forum, so the only way I can think of is to send gocng3 a private message. He knows how to contact Carl.

                    John, Next time I have my civic for oil change I will take pictures of the underneath for you. It has 2 type3 size 9.2 gges tanks with shield covering it. The high pressure filter was relocation to fit the 2 tanks. When I flatten my tires down the cover is about 1/8“ to the ground so it meets all the standards. Then then trunk pan was redesigned to fit 2 more tanks. Total of 6 tanks. I have is the OEM tank behind that is a10 gges, below that is 2 tanks I don’t know the size of them and the 2 under the vehicle. I attached a picture of what information, I received when I had it done for my records

                        That sounds like some pretty cool fabrication work. Looking forward to pictures!
