  1. Gen 5: 2017-2022 (UK 2018-2023) CR-V
    Did a search and didn't find much discussion re: this topic. Most responses were very anti-E-15 saying that the Honda engine was not designed for its use to which I say "bunk." E-15 is a higher octane fuel and I've used it without any problem in my 2017 CRV EX for four years now (and used it...

    Vehicle is a 2007 Honda CR-V. Have been noticing gasoline fumes/vapors appearing in the vehicle while driving. I have not been able to notice any gasoline drops or dripping from engine. A couple of days ago this started. At first it appeared to be sporadic but has become increasing more...

    I've seen references to gasoline in the oil of the CRVs with the turbo engine. Supposedly this appears in the oil when it is checked by appearing to be overfilled on the dipstick with a smell of gas. Also when the oil is changed it appears to be diluted and also smells of gasoline. There were...

    My almost new CRV EX has a strong gasoline odor, especially if I shut it off and then return to the car within a half hour. My garage also reeks. I've found other mentions of this on the web, seems to be a serious ongoing issue. I'm a bit angry that Honda continues to manufacture and sell...

    Not sure any one noticed this issue. The topless cap could not seal the fuel tank properly. Last week I was out of town and parked my CRV in my garage, the CRV was the only vehicle in the garage.The garage door kept closed for a week. When I went home and got into the garage, there's very strong...

    Hi, I'm considering to buy 2017 CR-V EX-L. Read that 2016 model have issues with gasoline smell. Hope new 2017 doesn't have that issue. Just asking owners to confirm.

    I'll start by requesting that this NOT be a discussion of premium vs regular, as that is being hotly debated in another thread. I'd like to focus solely on regular gas here, but examine the benefits of optimum/higher detergency. I'll also state that a) I know that Honda recommends top-tier in...
  9. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I see several posts on this but I do not read how these new car owners are resolving the problem??? I have had my vehicle in 4 times now without duplication by the dealership. Pressure tests etc. all come back negative. They release the car to me and I do not feel safe in it and I am hesitant...

    My wife's 09 CRV has gasoline smell in the air breather filter. It has 35,000 miles on it & I have changed the filter 3 times. Anyone have any idea why the filter would smell like gasoline?

    I thought you folks might like to know what I've learned about gasoline detergents. The EPA, for emissions reasons only, not engine health, set a minimum level of detergent that must be added to gasoline. The level was lower than some oil companies were adding at the time. An unintended...
