  • SPOT a NGV here

    For as much as I drive, I still dont see many NGVs, maybe a few a month. Today I saw 2, both in Diamond Bar, a silver Crown Vic heading west on the 60, and a lady in silver (01-05) GX south on the 57, that did not have the blue CNG sticker on it.

    I'm as much as an anarchist as the next guy but to not have the blue CNG plaque is foolish and illegal. The fire folks NEED that info.

    Some in UT have removed the GX side decals so it looks even more like a Civic LX.
    Not sure why?

      I do most of my driving on the 91, and I do see a handfull of NGV's during the week, mostly in the mornings. Not to many during the evening hours though...

        I spotted 2 this week, a blue (01-05) GX parked in front of Calif Wok in Fullerton yesterday, and a silver (new) GX on the 57 N in Orange this morning.

          I saw a brand new white(of course) 06-08. I can't tell the difference on 101 North in Santa Clara yesterday.

            Is there actually a rult that requires the blue diamond to be there?

              Yes, I believe it's the law.

                If the fire dept has to start cutting you out of the car in an accident, not that it might ever happen. You are going to want them to know what kind of fuel is on board so they use the right precautions and tools.
                Saw a dedicated Dodge Van going west on the Loop 101 last night in Phoenix, company was Ultra Rooter.

                  I only saw one all week (Tuesday), it was a new blue GX going down the 5 from the "Y" south towards Laguna Hills, it was really moving, I could not catch it.
                  Not my usual route, I was heading to Escondido to the Stone Brewery to see "Gas hole" the movie.

                    I see a lot of CNG cars around Chino Hills DBar that are not aqmd cars. Passed 5 in one day on the freeway one was a guy in a newer civic Lic CH4 ryde and another was a Brown cng camry by the 5 and 118 in the valley with a lot of bumper stickers.

                    I also meet someone new almost everyday at the pump who does not know about cng prices or cng chat.

                      Last night (6:30pm) I was behind a newer silver GX on the N/B 57 before the 60 split, was going 80+. I was spotted at my local station by a man who is a future GX owner from Perris. I guess he will be going out of his way for fuel to save $1.38/gge instead of fueling at the Moreno Valley station.

                          I commute from Ogden, Utah to Brigham, Utah everyday (~75 miles roundtrip). I typically see 1 - 2 NGVs a day on I-15. Most are F150s, Contours, and Cavaliers. There are few that don't have the blue diamond CNG logo on the back of the vehicle. I wish I could find the written fire code where it mentions that logo.

                            I was curious about that, too. Recently I've seen an older white ford van parked down the street from my house (2200 S 2100 E, Sugarhouse). It has painted on the back and sides "Natural Gas Vehicle factory direct from Ford" or something like that, but it doesn't have the diamond sticker.

                            I suppose the unit was built before the sticker requirement came into effect?

                              I actually got harassed a bit today on my drive in thru Chino on the 60. I pulled out of the HOV lane (it was moving slow) and Johnny law pulled up next to me and was showing me his fingers as to say "2 not 1". I pointed to the back of my car as to say look dummy I am in a NGV. There was a newer white GX a few cars ahead which I also pointed to. I have also noticed they are stepping up their radar traps, seen 2 this week, both times going around 75mph.
