  • Is Honda Dropping The GX?

    If you go to the Honda website and try to build your own GX, you are taken to a blank screen. After what Honda has apparently done with Fuel Master, I wonder what their intentions really are?

    The GX site looks OK to me...

      One thing is interesting...they are still advertising the Phill.

        I keep wondering if Honda is going to start making Phill themselves? That would be interesting.

          Why would Honda want to make the Phill? The unit was overpriced, hard to install, and not cost effective in most markets.

          There's a reason why the plug-in hybrids plug into any wall socket.

          Why not integrate the compressor into the vehicle, the vehicle could then connect to any low pressure feed and fill itself.

            The problem with integrate the compressor into the GX is powering it. You end up plugging it in just like a EV.

            Honda could likely build Phill for much less than Fuelmaker did.

            Just my two cents worth.

              Mother Honda sent out a memo to it's dealers today regarding Fuelmaker. I have seen a copy of the memo. In the memo, Honda restates their commitment to the GX and to working with an unidentified entity to pick up the pieces from fuelmaker. The vision is for Fuelmaker to rise from the ashes like a phoenix, leaner and meaner. Of course they also claim to own a minority share of fuelmaker and I've read multiple sources...that claim that Fuelmaker was a wholly owned subsidiary.

              What other options are out there for fueling appliances?

                I started a conversation with a guy last May at the St George station. He mentioned his son was working w/ a couple guys developing their own. Wish I would have gotten contact info to follow up with them.

                  I'm all for a plug-in CNG hybrid.

                    There is a dealer on E-Bay in College Place, Washington who is selling a 2001 F150 bi-fuel. If you scroll down to the very bottom of his ad he is promoting the Freedom Fueler Personal Refueling System.

                    Check it out!!

                        I looked at this website a few months back. I think it is a guy who is trying to raise money to produce a VRA. He doesn't actually say he has a product or even a prototype. His contact page is asking for investment partners. At this point however, it looks more like vaporware. I hope I'm wrong though.

                          if one did this would this get around the .5 gge limit as the compresser would be part of the car and not a home refuelind apl and it is legal to operate ones car in the yard just a thought
