The Honda Civic GX

This is a review by KBB of the Honda Civic GX. Many of you know one of my passions is for CNG vehicles. This is the only vehicle available to the public that you can buy straight off the lot in many places. Its manufactured in the United States at the Honda Plant in Ohio. I am considering getting one of these. Simply because I want a car that is not giving money to Al Queda. Most Natural Gas used in the US is produced locally here in the US. While those that get it out of the ground are huge multi-national corporations, the gas comes from here and is part of our resources. You have to think that when you fill your tank with Gasoline, eventually that money will find its way back to those who use that money to fund terrorism. One gentleman here in the ethanol debate that said something telling. This is the first war in which we are essentially funding both sides.

I live in the Milwaukee area and bought a govi surplus GX with 22k on it for 6k. I commute about 100 miles round trip and my fuel costs have gone down from $400 per month to $60. Of course that went from driving the Pilot SUV to the Civic so that alone would have had some impact. There are five or six places around Milwaukee to get fuel but if you leave town, you better be turning back around at 100 miles out. There are no filling stations west or north of here so it is strictly a commuter car. I wish they would build on the infrastructure making it a more palatable option for all of us! I like that it is GREEN, cheap to operate and uses no imported fuel. For those that do not have the luxury to own a "commuter car", it becomes an impossible choice. Secondly, Honda does not allow local dealers to even order the GX so you need to go out of state to get one and then have it shipped to you! DUMB! With 6 local fuel stations, i am sure they could put a dent in the hybrid market here.

Don: I live in Grafton. The Saukville Tri-Par has CNG at $1.399 per GGE tonight. Does a GGE of CNG equate to Gallon of gasoline? What kind of GGE mileage do you get with your GX? What govt auction did you find the GX at. The two of us both commute. We're thinking about getting one CNG car.

Thanks! Dick
