  • My First B-1 Service

    The B-1 Maintenance Minder just popped up. What exactly does this entail? What special parts are needed other than the low pressure filter? And how much should everything cost? I have called a number of dealers in my area (San Francisco Bay Area), and their prices and recommendations are all over the place. I will likely buy the low pressure filter from Bernardi and save a few $$. Any helpful suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    You have some options.
    If you go to the dealer, go to the honda website and under the GX page select a honda dealer from your zip code, then click on Civic GX NGV Service and a list of certified service shops. Be prepared to pay $$$ at the dealer.

    I heard great things about the Honda Acura connection in SJ. which I will start taking my GX to as they service some GX's there.

    Farther south in Gilroy, there is a CNG and LPG certified Mechanic ( A plus Auto service. )
    Honda service robs me every time I walk in.

    Look for paying ~ 300.00 in California

        I tried AH Connection near the SJC airport for my 30k maintenance for my 2011 Civic GX. I was really impressed with the people and work there (free loaner car very nice too). They were clearly very experienced with GX cars. Thanks for the recommendation.
