Hi,

Just leased a 2017 Rogue Sport and I am experiencing something weird. I filled my tank a week ago, and have been commuting all week. My fuel gauge suddently began to show a full tank when I only show 260 miles left of fuel. A full tank was showing just under 400 miles to empty when I filled up. Obviously there is something wrong with the gauge.

Has anyone else encountered this problem with your Rogue Sport or any other Nissan car?

William.

It's not just the Rouge Sport from what I'm reading. Did a bit of research and Repair Pal says the "fuel gauge may read incorrectly due to a faulty sender in the tank. A failed fuel level sender will require replacement to restore correct fuel gauge operation." The listed affected years include 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, and 2017. So if you've just leased the Rogue then it'll still fall under the warranty period and they should fix it under warranty for free.

Thanks Dualis. I am waiting until I have about 100 miles to go on this tank and then take it in. Let's see what they say. Keep you posted.

Update!!!

Ok, I filled up my tank again. 14.55 gallons. The average MPG was at 23.5 and the miles to empty showed 400 miles after the fill-up. This means that the gas in the tank came to a little over 17 gallons. The specs for this car say it holds 14.5 gallons. I guess the specs are not correct. Looks like the gauge is working is just not very accurate.

I ended up not taking it to the dealer.

Isn’t the fuel tank capacity always off by 1-2 gallons? I could be wrong, but I thought that’s why you should have at least 20 miles left (under normal driving conditions) when the gas light turns on.

I am encountering similar issue in my Nissan Rogue sport 2017. I noticed that fuel gauge is not properly working as fuel gauge is reading full although has been commuting all days. Kindly share your experience and estimated cost as well. Thanks.
Regards,
Tin
