Ok, so the potentiometer is on the pedal, and apparently it would show up on the diagnostic if there were a fault with it. They refuse to do anything else until I agree to pay £160 to have the fuel filter changed (recommended at 60,000 miles) so they can eliminate that. But the symptoms don't tally with a blocked or partially blocked filter. It's just too erratic, and it would do it all the time if it were a consistent problem like a filter. So I'm back to guesswork. I can get a pedal with potentiometer on eBay for less than £20 (off a scrapper, apparently tested). But I'm just shooting in the dark.

I know itís been a long time but did you sort this problem out in the end? I have exactly the same issue now by the sound of it.

The symptoms are familiar ,  I suspect a faulty EGR valve,  other Honda models had the problem of hesitancy prior to  acceleration and the fix being a new EGR valve, often under Honda warranty.
The problem iof hesitancy is most noticeable after coasting with the foot off the accelerator pedal, then applying accelerator.  The EGR has a potentiometer which is read by the ECU,  when the  EGR potentiometer is failing,  the ECU  has difficulty in reading the EGR signal and hesitates  for a second or so before applying power.
