Gfci

I want to re-wire a 20A circuit with a gfci but I 4wire output to a three wire circuit, by elimanating the neutrel. can I do this without causing problems with the gfci? Should the gruond ang neutrel tie together at the service panel?

When using a GFCI receptacle on a multiwire circuit, the cardinal rule is that you may not attach a shared neutral to the load side of a GFCI. So that means that you can either (1) not use the load side of the GFCI, or (2) split the neutral so that it no longer shared. Of course you always have the (expensive) option of using a 120/240 double-pole GFCI breaker on a multiwire circuit.
