    Sounds like the fuel tank sender unit is faulty!

    The Passport fuel gauges can be calibrated, and won't work properly when out of calibration. Your local Honda dealer has the tools to calibrate the sending unit/fuel gauge assembly. That's the first thing to try, after that if there is still a problem you may have an issue with the sending unit itself or the fuel gauge on the dash.
