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!

  • White HOV Stickers for CNG Civic Set to Expire Jan 1, 2019

    AB 266 states that vehicles that received white HOV stickers before 2017 expire on Jan 1, 2019. It does not indicate that there is any provision to apply to get an extension until 2022, or some other date, such as for "green" stickers that were obtained after Jan 1, 2017. Does anyone know if there is such a provision, or do we just need to wait and cross our fingers that the white stickers will get extended again by another assembly bill, presumably sometime in 2018? I currently have a 2007 CNG Civic and I am thinking of buying a 2015 CNG Civic, but I am concerned about only having a little over one year left for the HOV stickers. Any insight from anyone would be appreciated. Thanks.

    If those pre 17 white hov decals expire, about half of the Teslas and BMW electrics will be out too. Anyone think that will happen ?

        I would imagine it will probably be a rewind-repeat of before with the yellow hybrid stickers. The 85,000 stickers expired for these non-plugin hybrids and the white stickers continued on.

            Correct me if I am wrong. All current white sticker holders if purchased before Jan1st 2017 will expire Jan 1 2019.

                I'm sure there will be a lot of grunting CNG and EV drivers out there! Sad to see it go away. Is there anything we can do or is it a done deal?

                    so it will expire in 2019 for sure, but can be renewed to 2022?

                    seems likely...either way I'm going to move closer to work by next year...

                      Anyone heard of any changes or push by the Tesla folks about their stickers? I bet they would have more push since there are more of them than us.

                        Tesla will cause the white stickers to be renewed, and Tesla could care less about the green sticker folks.

                          How can you say it will be renewed? There is zero ambiguity in the law. It ends 1/1/19. Done deal. No exceptions! We are screwed
