Yikes! How many miles on the oil? How many miles on the engine? I'd bring that to the dealership and see what Honda says. Fight their first denial.

Looks like 4,350 miles.

Can you describe your driving patterns?

Can you describe what you did just before you took this sample?

In that case, definitely have a chat with Honda.

Go to your dealership with this printout in hand and make a fuss.

Thank you for posting! I was having a hard time deciding between the LX and EX coupe, but not so much now...

Us with the 2.4 Honda's seem to be having fuel problems too. I think its because they haven't perfected the DI yet.

Seems like many DIT engines are having trouble with fuel dilution, there were discussions about a couple of 3.5l Ecoboosts recently showing signs of it in their UOAs. I think there was a possible TSB from Ford being discussed, definitely worth checking with your dealer and poking around online about something from Honda.
My oil just reeked of gas the first time I changed it myself (20kmiles in), hasn't been so bad since then...not sure if Subaru has ever changed their code to try to address fuel dilution problems in their 2.0l turbo.

You're just joking about that, right?

If your wear metals are fine and TBN is fine, what's the big deal?

DON'T warm your car up before driving anywhere unless absolutely needed for safety reasons.
