American Honda announced that it is working with Clean Energy Fuels Corp. and participating Honda dealers to provide a special savings to customers purchasing a new 2012 Civic Natural Gas Vehicle – a debit card pre-loaded with $3,000 that can be used at Clean Energy CNG fueling stations around the country to purchase fuel.

Customers interested in receiving a $3,000 fuel card with the purchase of a new 2012 Civic Natural Gas Vehicle must make their purchase from a participating Honda CNG dealer on or before Jan. 2, 2013; the supply of fuel cards and model year 2012 Civic Natural Gas Vehicles is limited.

With a combined EPA fuel economy rating of 31 mpg and a fuel cost savings of up to 40% compared to a typical gasoline-powered compact car, the Civic Natural Gas Vehicle can significantly reduce fuel costs, according to the automaker. 

The Civic Natural Gas Vehicle is available for purchase at 199 certified Honda CNG dealers in 36 states. It is the only dedicated CNG-powered passenger car available for retail purchase from a major automaker and is manufactured exclusively by Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, LLC in Greensburg, Ind., using domestic and globally sourced parts.

In addition to the fuel card savings, 2012 Civic Natural Gas Vehicle customers in California may have the added benefit of single-occupant access to High Occupancy Vehicle "carpool" lanes through January 1, 2015.
