Question about Honda Cars & Trucks
If it's a digital display, with 'dead' pixels, this is often because the ribbon-cable which drives this function is not making a proper connection to the PCB behind the gauge.
To check, you will need to free the display binnacle and have a look at the connections at the back of the display.
Look for a ribbon-cable, which a thin, flat type of cable. (Sometimes it's a group of thin wires glued together & sometimes it's like a piece of thick film, with thin metal tracks inside it)
Carefully release the ribbon-cable from the back of the gauges, clean-up the contacts with Cotton-bud & white spirit or maybe an old toothbrush.
Then carefully refit the cable.
If there is more than one ribbon-cable & it's not obvious which one is for the fuel-display, you made need to do all of them.
Best of luck.

Is the vehicle wanting to turn over? If not at all, look at the ignition switch, sometimes the contacts wear down and intermittant problems arise, such as not starting or car will die while driving.

it sounds to me that the instrument cluster has gone bad. not for certain because I cannot see it but if you have a mechanic tell you that it is a very strong possibility.

the info of the problem is to broad, what type of smell is it plastic smell wire smell rubbery gassy? theres to many smells a car can generate while driving down a highway to narrow it down to just clutch plate or brake pads
although yes both can make a smell down the highway its more than likely a grease or liquid burning you should check your engine for leaks mainly around the head and tranny and also check your boots and joints it could even be you picked something up off the road and its now stuck on your pipes burning try it all out
