TCU Natural Gas Vehicle

Our 1.8 liter Honda Civic GX is a 100% dedicated naturalgas vehicle that has been manufactured by American Honda for 13 years for U.S. Highways. It sells for around $26,000 and gets about 27 mpg city and 38 mpg on the highway with an estimated range of 248 miles. Since it uses only natural gas, that sells for about than $2.00 per gallon, it means it emits 30% less C02 and 70-90% less CO, NOx and VOC emissions than gasoline or diesel engines. You can see our “FrogMobile” at most every football game!
