If your fuel gauge is showing you in accurate readings this is normal to all vehicles that are not used to fill-up gas full regularly but sometimes the cause of the inacuracy is due to faulty float valve in the gas tank you need to replace it
This may be a short circuit on the wiring, Try locating the sender unit on the top of your fuel tank and disconnecting the wires. If gauge still shows full then the fault is in the wires or gauge in which case do the same at the gauge end to see if it is a wire short. If gauge goes to empty then actual float in tank may be stuck. YUou could try giving a sharp tap on top of tank but use something wooded to prevent damage or sparks.
You're in luck
There is a possible recall on 2005-2008 nissan frontier/pathfinder and xterra, for erratic/inaccurate or
inoperative fuel gauge. This is the part# for the fuel gauge sending unit in question is #25060-ZS00A
Give your local nissan dealer and they should be able
to help you out. The reference number should be
#NTB07-069 AND 069A Hope this helps.
Sending unit died. can be expencive to replace since most sending units are integral with the fuel pump now. lots of labor too. Better to use the trip odometer till you can afford a day without your car and a $600.00 +labor repair bill.
i dont have a solution, but i have the exact same problem with my 2006 xterra. when i fill my tank, it appears as empty, then it takes a day or two for it to register as full. and not only that, ive ran out of gas twice because the gauge didnt register as empty, on the gauge it still registered as a quarter and 1/2!
It sounds to me like you have a short in your wiring harness at you fuel tank. there is a plug on top of your fuel tank that controls you fuel pump and your sending unit that tells you how much fuel is in the tank. This plug can be a real p.i.a to get to on some vehicles, you may have to take the vehicle to a shop to fix it, if you are not mechanically inclined.
