The Fuel Gauge May Read Incorrectly on Nissan Rogue

Problem Description and Possible Solution

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.

After fueling the gauge read full, however only after two hours (parked) now it says empty and the warning light came on. The range does display the correct mileage left (about 350 miles) but it still shows a warning.
I just bought the car from Nissan as a certified pre owned car and noticed the tank has read FULL for the last three days. I drive a lot. This seems impossible. I'm planning on taking it back to Nissan to see if they can fix it
Took it back to Nissan dealership with around 12k because everytime I filled up take the tank the fuel gauge would only read a 1\2 of tank, then slowly creep up to 3\4 of a tank. They replaced fuel sender & something else. However this has not fixed the issue as it's still doing the same thing. I have not brought it back to the dealer as I feel they don't have a fix for this issue from what I have read online in the Nissan forums.
Fuel gauge never reads full after rolling past 16,000 miles. Have to fill the tank to overflow level to make sure it is full. Still reads inaccurately. Dealer not aware of TSB on this issue until he checked with service department. Quote for repair: $119. to diagnose.
$420. for sender unit and sub-sender unit (vehicle is AWD) and $263. for labor. Informed me I was his first customer with this problem. According to info from other Rogue owners on the web, this is a common problem. Nissan should issue a recall not a TSB.
Gage reads zero though tank is full. Made appointment with dealer to repair in a couple of days; hope sensor does not tell engine to cut off.
Show low fuel when there is still half tank. Gauge tends to get back to normal reading after driving for a while. Service engine soon light also on.
My gas gauge says I have a half of a quarter of a tank or two ticks left when the fuel light normally comes on but I have a ways to go before i run out now it just runs out at that point instead
After last fill up gauge read full.Still showed full after 90 mi. After 150mi. gauge shows either full or 3/4 full when started and changes while driving but never goes below 3/4 tank.
Replacement cost is ridiculous.Nissan should issue recall.
I CAN NEVER FILL THE TANK , GAUGE WILL READ 1/2 TANK AND THEN CREEP UP TO 3/4 FULL AFTER DRIVING FOR A WHILE . DEALER SAID IT NEEDS NEW SENSOR WHICH WILL COST AROUND $600 - $800 DOLLARS . I AM GOING TO LEAVE IT UNTIL NISSAN ADMITS THERE IS A PROBLEM AND THEY WILL FIX.
I took my rogue in for the 30000 mile service and since then the fuel gauge is only starting at 3/4 of a tank, then gets up to full, after putting 15.1 gallons in the car, the mileage gauge shows only 250 miles then after driving a few miles it goes up to 310, but never is the same. Before Dick Smith in Columbia worked on my car, I would get 388 miles per fill up. I have spoken to the service manager and even Jud Smith who called me and said he roadtested my car and it holds 15.8 gallons and get 26 miles per gallon, which should be 418 and my fuel light should come on around 385-390. This last fill up I had to get fuel at 341 with only 22 miles left which would have been 363...and Jud Smith said the computer said everything is fine with my car. I lost $600, my car is not the same and I'm getting ready to go to Nissan directly. Don't ever let Dick Smith Nissan on Two Notch road work on your vehicle.
Four days ago I was driving on a highway around 11:00 pm and the car stop in the middle of it . We are alive because God is good. three times some cars were to impact us and create a big accident when we were waiting for the tow to come to help us . I look immediately to the gasoline gauge and it mark more than a 1/4 and show66 more miles to run .In the morning we connect a scanner on it but everything was ok. So I went to the gas station and purchase some gasoline and the rouge start immediately. Today I fill the tank complete but
it still marking 1/4 less. this is a big problem on the rouge I saw a lot of complaint on the forums to Nissan but nothing happened to help . I went to the Nissan in PR and an employee said it could be the fuel sender and no recall are open on the rouge.
I wired some lights to the car which I know isn't the smartest thing to do. The lights work and nothing shorted out but when the batter was turned back on from being unplugged the electronic gas gauge was higher than what it originally was. The car had around 80 miles left of gas but when I turned the car back on it said it had 124 miles left. I thought going to the gas station and filling it up would reach its maximum the car can actually hold. But it only made the number even higher than the car can actually hold. I plan on going to the dealership and hoping they can fix it
Was rear ended in 2015, after car returned fuel gage will only read from Empty to 4 gallons. When trying to fill Gas passed the point of gage reading 4 gallons, it will not let me. Gas pump reads tank as full. The actual gas tank feels full (told by auto body shop) when it's reading 4 gallons full. Because auto body shop could not prove the rear end accident was the cause of my fuel gage being broken after I picked my car up, the party at faults insurance will not pay. I have yet to get the repair estimated by dealership or find out cost for fixing, since I have had my car back for a week. Looking to find similar problems before giving up on fighting their insurance pays for (or proving accident is cause of problem).
The bars on the fuel gauge only go past 3/4 tank when filled up.Haven't contacted the Dealer yet to see if there is a TSB on this problem that involves many Nissan Rogues.
