The gas gauge does not show full when the tank is full. This is caused by faulty sensors in the two tanks which Nissan refuses to admit. I along with hundreds of others on online forums have had this issue and have to spend money out of our pockets although this is clearly a defect. It seems to be with the 2003/2004 models. It causes the drivers to not know how much gas is in the tank and at times leaving them stranded because the gas has ran out.

The car's fuel sensors will not allow me to fill up the gas tank completely. It stops about halfway every time.

Thousand of reported cases of not being able to fuel up the Nissan 350Z. The problem source is the filler neck shutter valve. Nissan is aware of the issue for years and have been making customer foot the $400-$500 bill instead of taking action on the faulty part. The faulty shutter valve causes fuel to spew out while filling the tank covering the car and operator in fuel. The risky part is people are changing the way they fill to try to bypass the action of the shutter valve but also works against the safety features of the gasoline nozzle causing it to not shut off when fuel reaches max. I personally cant only get 7 gallons in my car before it sprays out which is very annoying since I have to fight to add 7 gallons of fuel everyother day. I fought with this issue in my 2003 350Z and my 04. It is extremely common and should have been recalled years ago.
