Try replacing the sending unit in the gas tank. if the sending unit is bad it could cause your car to think that it is low or even out of gas.

How much does it cost to replace the fuel pump in a Honda CR-V?

It can cost around $1000 as an estimate. A simple tip to extend the life of your fuel pump: don't let your empty light (reserve fuel) light come on. That little light comes on when your fuel is so little that its below your fuel pump, which will cause it to overheat and eventually break.Added: It depends on what year CR-V you are asking about. Vehicles with the fuel pump installed inside the fuel tank WILL cost more to replace that ones who were built with the fuel pump external to the tank.
