Thanks for that thought.
However, doesn't this rely on the level sender being accurate?

For eg; If a fuel fill results in a sender indicating say, 60%, then your (calculated) distance to empty, DTE, will only be 60% of the maximum possible.
ie: 60L tank @ 10L/100km = 600km range with everything working okay.
Computer thinks you have 60% content, therefore, DTE = 60% of 600km = 360km DTE.

It does mean you will (be annoyingly prompted to) fill before needed, but isn't the whole idea of the DTE to provide a better (read: computed) estimation of range?

Good point.
Is this issue only with the Series 1 and 2 variant of the T31?

If I'm checking out a wrecker's sample, the VIN plate will tell me the month/year of production.
What month/year did the Series 3 commence?

Thanks...

Re:


You can add me to the list of owners with the top 2 bars missing on the gauge.

I doubt that nissan will do anything for me now that it's a 2008 model.

Re: Problem When filling up fuel tank


Well my T31 has hardly ever shown the last bar (Full). A month or two back I thought I had filled up but gauge showed only 3/4 full!! After a couple of days gauge moved more towards Full!

Happened a few weeks ago too.

Last Sunday I filled up and again showed only 3/4 full. After I had driven about 70Kms I topped up to see if I had actually filled the car before - it only took 7 litres so it had been full.

At my 70,000 service today mentioned it to the dealer and they happily replaced the senders as they were "Out of Spec". Work done under extended warranty.

Even though I had driven some 60kms since last fill up the last bar at the Full mark was still showing after I picked the car up. Gauge and trip computer read correctly now.

Interestingly the parts list showed "Pump and sender Unit" - methinks I also have a new Fuel Pump and filter also (big smile). The service manual seems to show the Pump, Filter and Float as one assembly.

Re: Problem When filling up fuel tank


Just had a regular service done at Lakeside Nissan today, mentioned the fuel gauge had played up. They replaced the senders under warranty no problems, works well now. Service and replacement completed in one hour.

Re:


And it seems I've got the same problem.

'08 T31 model with 112k on the clock - WELL out of warranty.

I spoke to a friend in spares and was told over $250 for a unit, so I assume that parts alone will be $500+. It also seems that it's a problem that is not limited to the T31.

I've only had the car a few weeks. It was brim full from a (non Nissan) dealer. I stopped for my first fill when the gauge showed 1/4 but it only took 30 litres. Now it's showing 1/4 again and I've only done 350km. I assume that the car will do the standard 10km/L but haven't pushed it yet.

Will the gauge just sit at 1/4 for ages until it catches up with the actual fuel level in the tank?

Is this sort of issue covered under a used car statutory warranty (Vic)?

Re: Problem When filling up fuel tank


So the Exy went into Werribee Mazda today (dealer I purchased the car from second-hand) for the fuel gauge to be checked. The guy I spoke to in Service seemed pretty knowledgeable and had seen several other different vehicles with split tanks, and knew of the two fuel sender units. I 'swapped' the mini truck for a Mazda 3 courtesy car and was on my way...

On picking up the car, I was given the invoice which says:

Labour: Inspected vehicle for fuel gauge not working.
           Inspected fuel sender units and found both resistor tracks worn.
           Supplied and fitted new sender unit and pump unit.
           Tested all OK.

There was no costs shown as it was completed under the 3 month statutory warranty.

Obviously the first thing I did on the way home was fill up to test it!!
Gauge showed 1/3 tank with 411km on trip meter. I put in 39L which all sounds right, and the gauge now shows FULL.

She's fixed!!

I was a pretty stand up response from the Werribee Mazda. I half expected to be brushed aside as it wasn't a roadworthy type issue and I've heard horror stories (not from this dealer) of things being dodged while covered by the stat warranty.

Re:


Yup...so its 2017...and i just bought an 08 xtrail TI with 98000k's on the clock and the fuel gage is messing up quite bad. Filled it up full and it shows only 3/4 full. Anyone with a recent solution? im willing to spend 200-300 since its really annoying. Im going to go to nissan to see if i can get the sender units replaced.
