Natural Gas Vehicles

My girlfriend is thinking about getting one of those natural gas Hondas and I’ve gotta be honest – I’m not sure I’m crazy about her tooling down the highway with the equivalent of a bunch of propane tanks duct tapes to the trunk. So I decided to look into it, and here what I found: the Civic NGV (Natural Gas Vehicle) gets 36 MPG, and has zero emissions. And check this (from pge.com, a company that sells natural gas):

 

“NGVs (Natural Gas Vehicles) are as safe, or safer than any gasoline-powered vehicle. There are over one million NGVs in use around the world, and without one fatality attributable to natural gas, it’s the safety record is unblemished.”

    Where do you go to get Natural Gas? Is it going up in price too?

    There are over 1,100 NGV fueling stations in the U.S. – over half are available for public use. Natural gas costs, on average, one-third less than conventional gasoline at the pump. Natural gas is sold in GGEs or gasoline gallon equivalents. A GGE has the same energy content (124,800 BTUs) as a gallon of gasoline.
