I own a honda civic si sedan 07 and have about 6000 miles on it

about two weeks ago i got an oil change and then a few days later i started noticing a dark brown spot on my driveway every morning. i thought it was first oil because it was near the front of the car and naturally i just htought something wasn't fixed during the oil changed

after finally finding the time to bring it in i actually do and the car "stops dripping" at the dealership

it used to drip a lot and then it gradually decreased. anybody know what the porblem might be?

nahhh not a gas leak

most likely what happened: the dealership did not use the baggy technique for unscrewing the oil filter so a bunch of oil dripped on your frame and wasnt cleaned up properly so it kept dripping.. there probably isnt a leak, but its possible

this was a lot of fluid though. i mean a lot of it. and when i brought my salesperson to my house to show him it was actually leaking and he took a towel and put it to the floor and agreed it smelled like gas. you could be right but just another thought

are you properly inserting the gas nozzle into the spout when refilling? you should make sure you are not just pouring gas all over the ground.

just got it back from the dealership
i really worked the engine on the way back so everything should be fluid in the car
prolly wait for A COUPLE hours to see how the gas leakage goes
