tell them what they've won...

a new car!





that's right! pete and i bought a natural gas car today! it is a honda civic gx 2004


I found this quote on gas2.org it was written may 5 by clayton b. cornell...

"Unlike the world’s most fuel efficient car (VW’s 285 MPG bullet), the Honda Civic GX looks like a standard passenger vehicle. What makes it special is what you don’t see: tailpipe emissions that are often cleaner than ambient air.

The Civic GX is powered by compressed natural gas—methane—the simplest and cleanest-burning hydrocarbon available. With an economical 113-hp, 1.8-Liter engine, the EPA has called the Civic the “world’s cleanest internal-combustion vehicle” with 90% cleaner emissions than the average gasoline-powered car on the road in 2004.

And get this: in Utah, natural gas can be purchased for $0.63 per gallon."

pete will pick it up in sandy tomorrow and it will serve as his commuter car. the nice thing is, the car payment is about the same amount we will save in gas every month! how cool is that

the downside, he will have to fill it up about every day but there is a station in ogden.

so there you have it, we have been looking for a while and we finally found a car that is nice and the bank will help us with. (it is difficult to get loans for these cars)

i am posting this a bit prematurely because it would be sad if it fell through, but most likely it won't so i am very excited. we will be giving rides if you want one.
