One major reason for this kind of problem is filling the gas-tank too much. I suspect over-filling the gas tank in your case.
Driving within the highway speeds increase the amount of pressure created in the gas tank, which would likely result in leakage. Over-filling the gas tank should be avoided at all times, because each time the specification is exceeded, the system would not be able to handle it. So it is very likely to experience some leakage under this cirumstance.
On this car, the gas tank is located under the second row seat covered by the carpet. It could help to give the gas tank a good check to see if perhaps the fuel-pump gasket needs replacing. Another reason to check up the fuel-pump area is to make sure that no major damage had occured in the gas tank area with the previous owner that was not properly fixed. To get to the fuel-pump:
a. Start the engine.
b. Relieve the fuel pressure in the system by pulling out the fuel pump fuse. The fuse for the fuel pump is located in a box under the left side of the dash. Once the fuel pump fuse is pulled out, the engine stops, and the pressure is relieved. Turn off key in the ignition.
c. Open the hood and remove the negative terminal of the battery.
d. Take out the second row seats by activating the levers under them. Then pull back the carpets also from the second row seating area..
e. Remove the four screws holding the access cover of the fuel-pump. And then remove the electrical plug on fuel pump's sending unit.
f. Use a large pliers with rags to loosen the plastic lock-nut. Or consider a special loaner tool from a reputable autoparts store.
g. Disconnect the fuel-line hoses, noting their previous installed positions.
h. Take out the fuel-pump. Check the seals for cracks, distortions, etc.
NOTE: When returning back the fuel-pump seal, the seal must go in the hole first.(This method lets the seal avoid getting pinched or distorted). Then gently lower the fuel-pump assembly into its hole.
i. Reconnect the fuel-pump electrical connector; reconnect the fuel-pump fuse and the negative battery terminal, return back the second row seats and the carpets. Start the engine, and look for fuel leak.

SOURCE: Gas Smell when heater turned on
When the heater is turned on, it is drawing in air from the cowl at the bottom of the windshield outside the car. If your smelling gas when you turn it on, it would suggest to me that there may be a fuel leak under the hood. A lot of Honda's have the fuel filter under the hood against the firewall. Open the hood, and see if the gas smell is any stronger, or any gas smell at all for that matter. I would strongly recommend getting the car checked as soon as possible, if you can find the source of the smell yourself.

Testimonial: "Thanks, this was helpful. I will check this out tomorrow. This seems more likely as I did smell gas outside of the car too. Appt Monday to get fixed."
you need to check the EGR valve and the Oxgen Sensor give these websites a try www.alldatadiy.com and www.autozone.com if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your car wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.
