About Your Multi-View Rear Camera

The rear camera view is restricted. You cannot see 
the corner ends of the bumper or what is underneath 
the bumper. Its unique lens also makes objects 
appear closer or farther than they actually are.

Visually confirm that it is safe to drive before backing 
up. Certain conditions (such as weather, lighting, and 
high temperatures) may also restrict the rear view. Do 
not rely on the rearview display which does not give 
you all information about conditions at the back of 
your vehicle.

If the camera lens is covered with dirt or moisture, 
use a soft, moist cloth to keep the lens clean and free 
of debris.

Fuel Information

Fuel recommendation

Use of a lower octane gasoline can cause a persistent, heavy metallic knocking noise 
that can lead to engine damage.

Top tier detergent gasoline

Because the level of detergency and additives in gasoline vary in the market, Honda 
endorses the use of “TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline” where available to help 
maintain the performance and reliability of your vehicle. TOP TIER Detergent 
Gasoline meets a new gasoline standard jointly established by leading automotive 
manufacturers to meet the needs of today’s advanced engines.

Qualifying gasoline retailers will, in most cases, identify their gasoline as having met 
“TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline” standards at the retail location. This fuel is 
guaranteed to contain the proper level of detergent additives and be free of metallic 
additives. The proper level of detergent additives, and absence of harmful metallic 
additives in gasoline, help avoid buildup of deposits in your engine and emission 
control system.

For further important fuel-related information for your vehicle, or on information on 
gasoline that does not contain MMT, visit www.hondacars.com. In Canada, visit 
www.honda.ca for additional information on gasoline. For more information on top 
tier gasoline, visit 

www.toptiergas.com

.

Fuel tank capacity: 19.5 US gal (73.8 L)

Unleaded gasoline, pump octane number 87 or higher

Fuel Information

NOTICE

We recommend quality gasoline containing 
detergent additives that help prevent fuel system and 
engine deposits. In addition, in order to maintain 
good performance, fuel economy, and emissions 
control, we strongly recommend the use of gasoline 
that does NOT contain harmful manganese-based 
fuel additives such as MMT, if such gasoline is 
available.

Use of gasoline with these additives may adversely 
affect performance, and cause the malfunction 
indicator lamp on your instrument panel to come on. 
If this happens, contact a dealer for service. Some 
gasoline today is blended with oxygenates such as 
ethanol. Your vehicle is designed to operate on 
oxygenated gasoline containing up to 15% ethanol 
by volume. Do not use gasoline containing methanol. 
If you notice any undesirable operating symptoms, try 
another service station or switch to another brand of 
gasoline.

How to Refuel

How to Refuel

Your fuel tank is not equipped with a fuel filler cap. You can insert the filler nozzle 
directly into the filler neck. The tank seals itself again when you pull out the filler 
nozzle.

1.

Stop your vehicle with the service station 
pump on the left side of the vehicle in the 
rear.

2.

Turn off the engine.

3.

Press the fuel fill door release button.

u

The fuel fill door opens.

1

How to Refuel

The fuel filler opening is designed to accept only 
service station filler nozzles for refueling. Use of 
smaller diameter tubes (e.g., those used to siphon 
fuel for other uses) or other non-service station 
devices can damage the area in and around the filler 
opening.

The filler nozzle automatically stops to leave space in 
the fuel tank so that fuel does not overflow as a result 
of changes in air temperature.

Do not continue to add fuel after the filler nozzle has 
automatically stopped. Additional fuel can exceed 
the full tank capacity.

3

WARNING

Gasoline is highly flammable and explosive. 
You can be burned or seriously injured 
when handling fuel.

Stop the engine, and keep heat, sparks, 
and flames away.

Handle fuel only outdoors.

Wipe up spills immediately.

4.

Place the end of the filler nozzle on the 
lower part of filler opening, then insert it 
slowly and fully.

u

Make sure that the end of the filler 
nozzle goes down along with the filler 
pipe.

u

Keep the filler nozzle level.

u

When the tank is full, the filler nozzle will 
click off automatically.

u

If you do not fill up the tank to full, 
always add a minimum of 3.5 US gal 
(13.3 L) of fuel.

u

After filling, wait about five seconds 
before removing the filler nozzle.

5.

Shut the fuel fill door by hand.

1

How to Refuel

If the filler nozzle keeps turning off when the tank is 
not full, there may be a problem with the pump’s fuel 
vapor recovery system. Try filling at another pump. If 
this does not fix the problem, consult a dealer.

If you repeatedly fill the tank with less than the 
specified minimum amount of fuel, the malfunction 
indicator lamp may come on. If this happens, have 
your vehicle checked by a dealer.

If you have to refuel your vehicle from a portable 
container, use the funnel provided with your vehicle.

Emissions

Achieving fuel economy and reducing CO

 emissions is dependent on several 

factors, including driving conditions, load weight, idling time, driving habits, and 
vehicle condition. Depending on these and other factors, you may not achieve the 
rated fuel economy of this vehicle.

You can optimize your fuel economy with proper maintenance of your vehicle. 
Always maintain your vehicle in accordance with the messages displayed on the 
multi-information display.

Use engine oil with the viscosity recommended.

Recommended Engine Oil

 P. 499

Maintain the specified tire pressure.

Do not load the vehicle with excess cargo.

Keep your vehicle clean. A buildup of snow or mud on your vehicle’s underside 
adds weight and increases wind resistance.

Before Performing Maintenance

Inspection and Maintenance

For your safety, perform all listed inspections and maintenance to keep your vehicle 
in good condition. If you become aware of any abnormality (noise, smell, insufficient 
brake fluid, oil residue on the ground, etc.), have your vehicle inspected by a dealer. 
(Note, however, that service at a dealer is not mandatory to keep your warranties in 
effect.)

Routine inspections

Perform inspections before long distance trips, when washing the vehicle, or when 
refueling.

Inspection and Maintenance

Maintenance, replacement, or repair of 
emissions control devices and systems may be 
done by any automotive repair establishment or 
individuals using parts that are “certified” to 
EPA standards.

According to state and federal regulations, failure to 
perform maintenance on the maintenance main 
items marked with # will not void your emissions 
warranties. However, all maintenance services should 
be performed in accordance with the intervals 
indicated by the multi-information display.

Safety When Performing Maintenance

Some of the most important safety precautions are given here. However, we cannot 
warn you of every conceivable hazard that can arise in performing maintenance. 
Only you can decide whether you should perform a given task.

To reduce the possibility of fire or explosion, keep cigarettes, sparks, and flames 
away from the battery and all fuel related parts.

Never leave rags, towels, or other flammable objects under the hood.

u

Heat from the engine and exhaust can ignite them, causing a fire.

To clean parts, use a commercially available degreaser or parts cleaner, not 
gasoline.

Wear eye protection and protective clothing when working with the battery or 
compressed air.

Engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide, which is poisonous and can kill you.

u

Only operate the engine if there is sufficient ventilation.

The vehicle must be in a stationary condition.

u

Make sure your vehicle is parked on level ground, the parking brake is set, and 
the engine is off.

Be aware that hot parts can burn you.

u

Make sure to let the engine and exhaust system cool thoroughly before 
touching vehicle parts.

Be aware that moving parts can injure you.

u

Do not start the engine unless instructed, and keep your hands and limbs away 
from moving parts.

u

Do not open the hood while the Auto Idle Stop function is activated.
