Water getting through the first flap valve of the capless fuel entry

Had a lot of rain over the last few days, so went to get the weekly fill of fuel and noticed that the first fuel filler neck flap looked to have water around the edge, push it open to see there was a pool of water between the first and second filler flap.
Used some paper towel to soak it up before fueling, as it would of entered the tank had I inserted the pump nozzle through the second filler flap. Google it and seems there are few owners of civics and crv with the capless filler that have this issue as well. Maybe somthing to keep an eye out for.

That’s why there is a drain hole at the bottom of the filler neck before the lower sealing flap, that allows any surplus of water / excess of fuel from the filler when it is withdrawn to drain away down a tube and under the car. Small drops of water are not going to cause you any issues.
