    SF Chronicle: Hybrid cars not always as green as they seem

    http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/articl...BAMR139TBC.DTL

    Interesting quote about 3/4 down the article:

    "Other cleaner vehicles available now include compressed natural gas cars, most of which are confined to fleet cars owned by businesses and government agencies. The Honda Civic CNG vehicle is the lone vehicle available to consumers, Quong said, though Toyota has announced plans for a CNG-powered Corolla."

    I don't know about you, but this is the first I've heard of a CNG Corolla.

    Re: SF Chron: Hybrid cars not always as green as they seem

    I saw a CNG Toyota Corolla this week at the Tesoro in Salt Lake. The guy had to lift the hood to fuel it and it didn't have the blue diamond "CNG" label on the back of the car. I would have quizzed him a bit but I was in a hurry and he pulled in just as I was paying inside. I wish I had, at least to encourage him to get the label on the back of the car.

      They must have meant Camry. Here's a review of the CNG Hybrid - http://www.autoweek.com/apps/pbcs.dl...9982/1530/FREE
