    Since day one I had to push harder to get the gas door out, but there is a service bulletin by Honda for this issue, replacing the little spring and mechanism. I haven't really push the issue with Honda but they know about it... :-0

    The fuel door sticks so it sometimes doesnt open when im at the gas station and sometimes it wont close either. Its the fuel filler lifter that pushes open the door. it's defective. I need a part number to replace it
