Two times in the past month i have experienced the same problem while driving on interstate roads. My gas gauge and trip monitor indicated i had about 60 miles until empty then after driving a few miles it said about 30 miles to empty and shortly after that car started sputtering and losing power and i had to make emergency moves to keep from getting hit. Both times i was able to pull unto the shoulder and drive a short distance to a gas station to fill the tank which took only slightly over 15 gallons and the tank holds 19 gallons. I have found the identical complaint on several web sites and there does not seem to be any help from nissan or even an admittance that the problem exits. I just returned from my dealer in naples, fl. And all they could tell me was that no error codes were showing and i could not expect the gauge to be accurate at all times since it is constantly recalculating and changing distance to empty. That really has nothing to do with the problem since the car was apparently not out of gas and in the past i have put over 18 gallons in the tank so i am certain it was not out of gas. I believe there must be a problem with the pickup tube, sensors or a combination of both. Having your vehicle suddenly stall in front of a semi truck is no laughing matter and we were lucky to have escaped without a major accident. On one of the forums the owner was told by the dealer that it was not a problem if they would not let their tank get below 1/4 full. Not much help! *tr
