 Description of the problemWhile driving in town and on freeway, noticed very strong fuel smell in cabin of car, enough to make kids complain in the back seat. Had to turn off heat/fan. Brought car in to dealer on 2/19, and oil was overfull by 3/4 quart due to fuel dilution. Changed oil and filter. Advised honda has no clue, watch oil. Mileage: 3953. Opened case with honda. 2/25 - drove 50 miles one way on freeway to go shopping. While going from store to store, strong fuel smell again in cabin. Parked in garage at home, later had to move it out due to garage filling with fuel smell. 2/28 - oil overfull and smells like fuel, dealer changed oil and filter. No other solution. 3/2 - honda case mgr called, advised they are working on solution. Until then, check oil every couple days and all oil changes will be warrantied. 3/3-3/15 - smelling fumes inside cabin again. Nothing strong. Just becoming the "usual". 3/15 - oil change number three, same reason. Mileage 5475. Ironically, i the beginning of feb, before knowing this issue, i had a dr appt. I advised my doctor that my asthma has gotten worse. It was exercise induced previously, but now it's flaring at random times and my chest hurts. I got a new asthma plan. Come to find out, fuel fumes aggrevates asthma!!
