  • Hey from Oklahoma

    Hello,

    I have just started on a quest to see what I could do to cut my fuel cost. I live in oklahoma and drive an avg. of 90 miles a day commute. I had a friend 15 years ago that his granpa used a propane truck on his ranch for ages. Then really got interested when I saw Im close to some refueling stations around me that are at .91 cents.

    Just curious, I cannot find any cars within 800 miles that are newer than 2002. I do understand California and Utah are eatin em up. Is it worth converting a car? what is the cost?

    Thanks for this site it only took me 3 days to find it. hehe

    Brad,

    Welcome from another Oklahoman, call Tom Sewell at Tulsa Gas Technologies. They do conversions there and depensing on what you have may be able to help. Look in the neighborhood of around $10,000 for the conversion if your vehicle is eligable. He is also a member on this board and goes by TOMTGT if you'd like to shoot hem a pm.

    good luck!

        Bob Howard honda in OKC made their order last Thursday and we granted 23 cars. I put in my deposit ($500 REFUNDABLE) yesterday (7-15) and I was #15 on the list. A co-worker went with me and is #16 on the list. You might give them a call.

            Hello,

            I'm new to the forum, but have been reading it for several weeks as guest. I'm from Marlow, OK and had been looking for GX for my daughter to drive to college and when I saw the post on Bob Howard, I called and put down my deposit. The guy was kinda rude and didn't seem to know much about the GX, colors options etc. So other than the '08 info on Honda's site, I dont' know anything more. Did they give you guys anything on colors or options, if any on the '09s?

            Also the Honda site says Eskridge Honda is the service facility in OK for the GX, so why is Bob Howard selling them? Is the site out of date?? Thanks.

                Yeah, they werent the nicest with me either, but at the time I had called all the Honda dealers in OKC and they were the only ones getting a significant number and the only dealer not selling over MSRP. They are not sure what colors their allotment is going to have.

                  Bob Howard is a VERY recent addition to the GX retail sites. They just completed their training to become a GX dealer about a month ago.

                  So in OKC look at Bob Howard, hit up Joe Marina in Tulsa.

                    I put down a deposit at Bob Howard last month. They had a 2009 demo and I drove it.

                    Sales guy assured me that they had earmarked for me. Has anyone heard anything from them?

                    I called yesterday but didn't get any time frame other than sometime this month.

                    I live in Mcloud and will fill up mostly in Shawnee and OKC. Do I need a Fuelman card to fill up?

                    Thanks,

                    Ragan

                      Hello, the Oklahoma Natural Gas (ONG) CNG refuel stations all use a basic credit card reader. So you don't need a fuelman card here in Oklahoma. The Shawnee fill is normally slightly under pressure at about 2000-2500 psi. The N. Santa Fe and SE 59th St refuel stations usually have good pressure of 2800-3000 PSI. Welcome to the Oklahoma CNG bunch! Wes
