In an interesting twist of Civic affairs, buyers in California now have another choice when it comes to shopping for a Honda: the natural-gas powered Civic GX. According to Honda the cost-per-mile to operate is about 43% lower than the already pretty-frugal gasoline model. The cars have been available to fleet buyers for the past seven years, but the consumer model comes with an added bonus: an in-home refueling station. There's no word on when the program will spread to the other 50 states, and even less word if we're gonna get a CNG-fueled Type-R model. Hey, we can hope.
