Fuel sending unit failure, not reading the correct fuel amount for more than 7 months. The led lights on the fuel gauge didn't indicate the correct fuel amount giving different reading all the time. For that reason I always keep the car with more than 1/4 tank in addition to being afraid of fuel starvation when below 1/4 tank. Fuel sending unit replaced by the dealer after 3 visits.

Dear NHTSA, I would like to report a serious issue with the Nissan 370Z. Today as I was coming out of a sharp right hand off ramp (from I-91N into 15N in hartford, ct). The car experienced fuel starvation in which all gas slosh to the left side of the vehicle. Even though the car was straightened out after the turn, the fuel never returned to the right side where the fuel pump is. So despite having 4.5 gallons left in the gas tank, my car completely shut down due to the fuel pump not being able to get any fuel. I sat there desperately trying to restart the vehicle, I ended up having to have the state police called a flatbed to get me to the nearest gas station. It took my car 14.3 gallons to restart (car has approx. 18.7 gallon capacity). I want to let NHTSA know how dangerous the situation is as the car can shut down after any sharp right turn when the car is below 1/2 a tank of gas. I had actually experienced it with 3/4 tank of gas, but never to a point where the car refused to start after. I hope the NHTSA can look into it as multiple owners are reporting the same issue on the internet. The dealer is no help as the fuel would slosh back to the right side after sitting through a 2-3 hour flatbed ride, resulting in perfect start up.
