Fuel Problems

I recently purchased my 2004 Nissan Titan and just noticed an issue with my fuel gauge. According to Nissan, the Titan has a 28 gallon gas tank. Today I went to fuel because I had a 1/4 tank but was only able to fill up with 15 Gallons.

The truck has custom rims 305/45 22". Does the computer need to be re-calibrated?

Any suggestions?

It is a design fault of Nissan. I have had mine replaced 3 times and it goes out repeatedly. Happens with all titan at some point. Just keep track of mileage and not the gauge. 05 and newer have a recall though they still go out and you get to a point you won't replace it.

As has been stated, the fuel sending unit is bad.

My 2008 Titan had recall about a year ago and its is doing it again lately.It is on half but I think it is almost empty.It's been doing it again for about 2 weeks now.Still under warranty so no charge to get it fixed.Ill bring it to the dealer next week.

Pretty typical for an '04. It get worst with age. When I'm on "E", it takes 22 gallons to refill.

Stalling, exhaust fumes, and running out of gas

2005 Armada has run out of gas with the guage showing half full. It also has stalled a couple of times after a hesistant start. Now how do I put this..I've also noticed the exhaust fumes have been very noticable to the smell, more than usual. Any ideas? Fuel filter or the fuel pump or both?

sounds like a bad fuel sensor which is in the pump, IPDM, and cracked manifolds.....in that order.
