Amidst charges that embattled American Honda is systematically suppressing
its compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle program, the company has suddenly
fueled that impression by throwing into bankruptcy its wholly-owned CNG
refueling company, Fuelmaker.
Toronto based Fuelmaker was arguably the lynchpin of CNG's future as a
bridge solution to alternative fuel. The firm manufactured and distributed
the essential refueling appliance that allowed home-based and fleet
refueling of CNG vehicles, including the Honda Civic GX heralded as the
"greenest car in America".
