2013 Honda Civic Natural Gas Road Test & Review: Introduction
What if we told you there is an energy source available to power your car that is cheaper than gasoline, cleaner burning, and can be accessed right outside your home? What if we told you there are abundant supplies of this fuel available right here in the United States, so there’s no need to import it, nor do we have to worry about supplies being cut off by a government hostile to ours?
Further, what if we told you cars have been running on this fuel since 1998, so it’s proven, reliable and absolutely feasible? Would you want to know more about it? Or more importantly, would you want to buy a car that ran on this miraculous fuel?
Well, it’s absolutely true.
The fuel is natural gas and the car is the 2013 Honda Civic Natural Gas.
Natural gas, like all petroleum-based fuels, formed from the fossil remains of ancient plants and animals buried deep in the earth. While natural gas gives off a lot of heat and light when it burns, it doesn’t produce smoke because it burns cleaner and hotter than oil-based fuels. The main ingredient in natural gas is methane, which is also produced as a byproduct of the fermentation at landfills.
In other words, yes, garbage dumps also produce this fuel.
