Abstract: Quadratic curvature Gauss-Bonnet gravity may be the solution to the darkenergy problem, but a large coupling strength is required. This can lead toconflict with laboratory and planetary tests of Newton-s law, as well as lightbending. The corresponding constraints are derived. If applied directly tocosmological scales, the resulting bound on the density fraction is |Omega GB|< 3.6 x 10^-32.
