Natural Gas Vehicles

June 26, 2008

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.”
