    Might be too early to make any definitive conclusion. If you are willing to help the rest of us out, keep going for another tank or two of regular gas and report back. I myself is using regular gas right now after using super unlead plus the insulation method and not experiencing the OD issue. I made the switch to see if it matters and will continue to use regular gas until I find something.

    Classy JB in AZ. You gave a thank to a post that criticized you.

    There was a poster who resides in Calgary and said that he no longer experienced OD after using a engine heater. I couldn't locate that post to reply to it. Wonder if you are willing to do a long term test by not using the heater to see if OD comes back. I'm interested in what mitigates the OD issue since mine went away too. I'm now experimenting with different things with my car to see what helped.

    Teething problems. How appropriate. The errors are being thrown because my timing chain is stretching when it comes to full temperature. Throwing every error in the book hoping the idiot driver would notice.

    Makes you wonder about the average Honda driver, having to give 16 different system error messages when the timing is off. Why not just say, "Power Reduced, Limp Home Please?"

    It is an entertaining video to watch, all those errors rolling off for systems you probably were only vaguely aware of. I did record it. Had to. After two starts it goes back to "All Cool, Man" mode. Even CEL clears. The Service Advisor seemed surprised the errors cleared since I said I suspect it's timing, but he doubted it was timing because the errors cleared.

    The loaner this time is a 2019 Civic, nice car. Feels better than the Rouge. I prefer the red fuel and temp gauges to the all white ones my CR-V has.

    I hope they get this resolved for you. BTW, I like you attitude!

    FYI, the 2018 CR-V went to the red fuel and temp gauges pointers...but you probably knew this. :-)

    Hello all, I live in Southern California (Orange County) and wanted to check with other owners here in SoCal about their OD problem. Mine is a 2018 CR-V Touring. My first oil change had to be done at 5.2k miles and oil life was down to 10%-20%. I'm at 6.2k miles now and Oil is at about 80% life and going fast. Exhaust smells like gas and my wife has complained about smells inside too. I checked oil dip stick and its about same as everyone, very thin, above line and smells like gasoline. Should I open a case with Honda? How can this be done?

    Definitely contact your dealer about your problems. They will open a case with Honda when they could replicate your problems. As for your problems, can you describe in more details about your situation, like 1) your weather temperature, 2) the kind of gas you use, 3) your driving conditions (frequent extreme short trips/a lot of stop and go/long idle time/aggressive driving) etc.

    Oil life is determined based on drive length, idling, aggressiveness, weather, etc. My MM had me on a 10,000 mile treadmill. Looks like it still does.

    I had the software product update and A/C unit hardware module replaced on 12/31/18. They changed the oil at that time, I drove around 3,400 miles and still had 70% oil life according to MM. My oil had risen to an inch over the full hole twice, it went up, went down, went up again. Had the oil changed last week, they confirmed a whirling noise was the head, they replaced the cams, bearings, rockers...Now this week my timing chain is being replaced. Next week, who knows?

    Maintenance Minder has no clue to what your oil condition is. It just guesses based on factors programmed in at the factory. It's just an algorithm. Just a little smarter than the reset hole analog colored trip odometer they used to use.

    If you get a loaner, perhaps its the best way forward. If the dealer keeps replacing worn parts too often, sooner or later Honda has to admit OD is harmful, not normal.
