Are Odysseys with cylinder deactivation more prone to carbon build up due to lack of cylinder/valve temps? Might a high grade of gas (with more additives) be a good idea?

The VCM system is constantly working...deactivating cylinders as needed. So, it is not like the 2 or 3 cylinders (depending on VCM generation) are not being used for a long time.

Honda/Acura recommend top tier gas. Search for threads on it to learn more about it.

With regular maintenance, high quality fluids, and top tier gas, you should not have any carbon build up issues with the Ody
