Losing even 5% would be pretty alarming, I think? Shouldn't the amount lost due to leaks be like maybe .1%? I'm thinking of air hoses and their fittings and assuming that Phill and the GX would be at least as good. If Phill lost even 1%, he'd be blowing up garages pretty regularly... From a consumer acceptance standpoint, Honda would need to make sure that people didn't smell gas in their garages. And from a liability standpoint, they would want to make sure that at the time of line uncoupling, the volume around the coupling that exceeded the LEL would need to be really small... Okay, I think I'm done.

I find it interesting that CNG and LPG would be worst for GHG and GWP due to leakage in getting it. You would think that the small amount that is leaked would be offset by the amount of reduced GHG from being burned. It's never easy. Here's some more info on emissions.

It's not just at the car, although that's probably significant, but over the entire supply chain. It's only a problem because CNG traps roughly 60 times more heat than carbon dioxide, so any and all emissions result in a big spike in GHGs.

Okay, thanks, then. Still, that seems so high...

The percentage of CNG lost, or the GWP methane?

CNG sounds like a great solution. I would love to try CNG, but I've never seen a station that sells it in my life.
