Find Used Honda Civic GX Cars in Utah

The Honda Civic GX is one of the "greenest" vehicles for the 2004 model year. The Honda Civic GX is a unique vehicle in that it is powered by compressed natural gas (CNG), and this means it is a high efficiency, almost zero emissions used car. The Civic GX is runs on a standard Honda Civic LX body. The only fossil fuels it uses is 3.5 quarts every 10,000 miles. So, how do you fill up your car? In some parts of the country, including Utah and California, there are public filling stations. Filling up from a public CNG station usually involves a 3 – 4 minute quick fill with higher temps, already compressed volumes and the more common CNG pressure of just 3,000 psi. The problem with the GX, for some is finding a filling station within range of where this used car can drive. If you do not live anywhere near a refilling station, then the alternative would be the Phill. Phill is an affordable natural gas refueling appliance that provides drivers of the natural gas-powered Honda Civic GX with the convenience of refueling their vehicles at home using an existing natural gas supply. Although Phill can cost up to $4000, there are often tax credits and rebates available to offset most of the cost. To fill the vehicle it takes about 16 hours. For many with the Civic GX, they simply plug the vehicle in to the Phill overnight, and it is ready to go un the morning. The advantage of a filling station is that the GX will fill much quicker.

This used car has a typical Civic ride. The Civic is certainly no luxury vehicle, and it does not exactly drive like one. The GX handles well, and if the tires are the original manufacturers, they will be Low Rolling Resistance (LRR) Bridgestone B381’s. LRR tires are much better for fuel efficiency, but not as good traction as non LRRs. So, this vehicle is great on the paved road, but do not try to do anything silly, like racing it. Also, rated at just 100 horsepower and 98 pound-feet of torque, the GX is 15 hp shy of the standard four-cylinder Civic. Driving this used car may feel strange at first, as the rpm are nearly level even during acceleration. Accelerating from zero to 60 took 12 seconds which by today's standards is very slow. The 2004 Civic GX’s range is advertised at 220 miles. With a slow fill to a full 3,600 psi, the GX’s range could be expanded. The space inside the Civic GX is decent; rear legroom is unaffected, even though trunk space is diminished by the larger fuel tank. Since this is such a unique used car, the fuel gauge and re-fueling station location were a higher priority concern then they would be with a gasoline or diesel vehicle. Despite the limitations imposed by the problem of such few refilling stations, the GX is a real-world alternative to rising fuel costs. Finding a used Civic GX would be an excellent alternative than seeking out a hybrid, and it has earned it worthiness as a valuable, useable, everyday vehicle.
