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!

    In brief: Extends high-occupancy vehicle identifiers for super-ultralow-emissions vehicles, advanced technology partial zero-emissions vehicles, and transitional zero-emissions vehicles for an additional four years if the owner’s household income meets the threshold designated as low income.
    Status: Referred to the Senate Rules Committee.

    ??? Only applies to applicants who have below 80% of California's median income... so that is like 65K???

    If that's the case, Keep the Civic's and sell them yourselves to get top dollar as they are still of value since they can still get someone on the HOV lane.

      On Thursday, Brown signed a bill that would allow residents who make below 80% of the state’s median household income — about $54,000 a year — to buy decals for some used cars that were already issued white and green stickers. That regulation goes into effect in 2020.
      It looks like white sticker Civics wouldn't be eligible for this until 2020.

      Here's the actual Senate Bill:

      Because carpool lanes are getting jammed, huge numbers of clean air decal holders are being kicked off. Some say it's unfair, and feel pressured to buy new cars to keep their perk.

        I am sure we have some lawyers on this forum somewhere.

        What are the chances of suing the state for creating a law that does not provide for equal protection under the law.

        How can a used Civic GX purchased in Utah get a Red Sticker, but my California owned and driven Civic loses the sticker? They are both the same car.

          I think of it this way. My 09 Civic still holds a good resale value. At 240k miles on it. I'm ready to part ways.... In Jan of course. Some student can buy mine and apply for the new sticker and get to class early.
