  3. Fuel Gauge showing empty - tank is full

    Problems & Issues
    Hi guys, I just registered for this site. I've had my 1999 CRV since 2012 and have recently had a slew of issues. The other day it wouldn't start and had 5 engine codes: P0301, P0302, P0304, P0300 (Cylinder 1, 2, 4 misfiring and multiple cylinder misfires) , P1457 (Evap control system leakage...
  4. Any benefit to running a tank of ethanol-free gas?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    There's a gas station near me that just opened and carries ethanol-free gas. It's more expensive than regular, but is there any benefit to running it through the latest CRV models? I've read you can get better gas mileage. I'm about to go on a road trip and was thinking about filling up with...
  5. Size of Gen 1 reserve fuel tank?

    1996-2001 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 1)
    The Gen 1's fuel tank capacity is 58L according to the manual and by my estimation the fuel reserve is around 6L. By reserve tank I mean the remaining capacity when the red low fuel warning light comes on. Anyone have info to confirm that?
  6. 97 won't run well without a bottle of Heet in the gas tank

    1996-2001 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 1)
    I have a 97 CR-V with 36,000 on it. (That's not a typo, it's low mileage) I rarely take it on highways and when I tried last month it would not go over 30-35mph and the engine was not running well. I took the CR-V to a quick lube place for an oil change and they cleaned the fuel injectors and...

    Is there any way I can increase my fuel capacity such as another tank? I pull a light trailer to Colorado from Iowa. I have a 2002 with 14 gallons capacity.
  8. Safe to use Seafoam in oil/gas tank?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I use to use Seafoam regularly on my 2007 Trailblazer, including the vacuum line. I am not sure if that product is safe to use on these turbo engines? I don't want to use it now, as my CR-V only has 7800 miles on it, but I would consider it once I'm at 25K miles. Any thoughts?
  9. 2003 Honda CR-V Stall when full tank of gas

    Problems & Issues
    Hey all. Recently encountered an issue where my CR-V is stalling / won't start. It's early yet, meaning it's only happened a couple of times so I'm still trying to track down the possible issues. However, I did notice that after I filled the tank, only until the pump auto-stops, that when I...

    Recently I ran into some Chinese CR-V website and some users of 2017 CR-V (1.5T) encountered a potential major issue that excessive gasoline gets into engine oil tank. The original link in Chinese: http ://news.bitauto.com/hao/wenzhang/479967 At first, some user noticed the increase level of...
  11. Please help! Chrome flap that seals gas tank

    Problems & Issues
    So, you know that little chrome flap that seals a fuel tank on a car? What would happen if that broke off and fell into the tank? I was putting extra gas from a 5 gallon jug into my honda 2011 CRV, and i'm pretty sure that chrome flap was there when i started, and it isn't anymore. I was...
  12. Gas tank size

    Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion
    Hi, i recently purchsed a 2017 CRV Ex. I notice that when I fill my tank from very ear empty I am only getting about 11 3/4 gallons of gas. Seems like not enough. It's supposed to have a 14 g tank. Where are s the other 2 gallons? Is it an emergency reserve for after you go below E?
  13. Cannot fill passed 3/4ths tank

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    FINAL UPDATE*** Thought I ditched you guys didn’t you. Anyhow, after using a test sample of 6 refuels trying a methodology of: assuming the gas is pumping too fast, or the dispenser nozzle is too long, or the CRV’s gas pipe is at an angle at which is prone to giving false readings I have...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    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...
  16. 1998 Gen 1 CRV Fuel Tank Vent Lines

    Problems & Issues
    Hello all, So I am embarking on a little r&r project on my 98 V. Got it as a second car and its got 148k on the clock so I decided that I mine as well do some fixing up and keep her as a family car for hopefully 100k + miles. I bought it with a leaking gas tank and being a NE Ohio car you can...
  17. 2017 CR-V gas tank size

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I bought a 2017 CR-V LX a couple of weeks ago and have filled the tank twice. Both times I drove it until the gas light came on (and then some) and both times I was only able to put 10-11 gallons in. The specs say the tank should hold 14 gallons but doesn't make sense that I can only put 10 in...

  19. Fuel Tank Protection?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    We have a perimeter cage around our CR-V fuel tanks. Earlier this spring, I ran over a semi tire tread on the interstate and caused extensive damage to the underside of a Jeep Grand​Cherokee. Given that situation, are there any aftermarket solutions available for our underbodyies​?
  20. gas tank size?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    According to my research my 2017 CRV should have a 14 gallon gas tank. The first time I gassed up it only took 11.9 gallons. I got to 25 miles range today and fueled up again, and it only took 11.4! Is there a reserve tank or something? My range is only about 315 miles with this, although I...
