They're pretty obscure. You can find them mostly on the West Coast (Cali or AZ), and many city fleet maintenance centers. Here, the Water Department uses Civic GXs for their light-duty fleet, with refueling at their private locations. Same for the airport. Inter-terminal and Parking Transit Buses run on CNG/LNG and refuel at their garage. It's all hidden from the public.

The Phill device (link earlier) is only available in some states ("Right" and "Left" Coasts + New England/Inland). Depends on the law, and mostly, marketing.
