Hello! New guy here and i recently bought a 2019 Touring model. I noticed some "knocking " noise when accelerating below 20 rpm. Went to the dealer and after their head mechanic test drove it, he said that its the fuel injector noise i am hearing. I test drove another '19 touring model from their lot and it sounded way less (if any) than mine. The sound gets to be annoying , especially when the radio is off.

Does anyone have the same experience and is there a fix for it?

Thanks!

Fuel injection systems are running at amazing psi numbers these days. The result is noisier injectors than in the past.

I don't notice any noise inside the car, especially when the radio is on. I do notice it if I stand outside next to the engine area.

The dealer didn’t have a fix for that? All they did was tell you where the sound was coming from?

Fuel rail is really high pressure, everytime the injector fires it makes noise. Honda has added extra insulation to reduce it but you can still here it.
