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!

    The part online is about $140 When looking at online Honda dealers for 1998 - 2005 GX, select civic sedan, then drill down to find GX trim. 2006 and later parts catalog have the GX as civic NGV.

    Same size as an oil filter , much thicker shell. not hard to change unless the last time someone over torqued it. I used an oil filter wrench and long extension from under car. NOT ROCKET SCIENCE BUT UNLESS YOU CAN BE ABSOLUTELY SURE THE FUEL SYSTEM IS DE PRESSURIZED , LET A SHOP DO IT. This is the low pressure side, but with a flaky fuel regulator, it can see very high pressures. Any mechanic shop can change it. nothing magic about the dealer except parts being on the shelf and expensive. Check youtube , might find a video.

    Your car has a CVT trans. CVT fluid is cheap online. Some local dealers want about $ 15 a quart
