Your axle stands aren't in the correct place.

Jack the rear of the car up by the towing hook and place your axle stands at the back of the sills, the sills aren't used for jacking the car up on Honda's, for the rear it's the towing hook and on the front it's the subframe from the middle.

And you still have a diesel leak, nine months later?

From the very middle of the car, you need to lay down to see it. You have your subframe then in the middle of the subframe you have a spot to jack it up. If you still have your undertrays on you should see like a rubber bump, that's the jacking point. Then lower the car on to axle stands on the sills where the sill protrudes more. Pretty much all Japanese cars use the same principles for jacking points. Front subframe and rear towing hook.

There was a manual with all the jacking points etc highlighted, but I don't seem to be able to find it any more.
