Premature Warning lights for low fuel levels
Hello everyone. I need your help. I own a new Altima Hybrid and have found that the fuel warning light is activated when I have travelled approximately 450 to 500 miles. I am averaging approx. 32 m iles per gallon and with a tank capacity of approximately 20 gallons, my range should be approximately 640+ miles. To date I have not been able to put more than 19 gallons in then tank because my entire dashboard warning lights light up if i exceed 550 miles of driving on one tank of gas. Questions:
1. Does anyone else experience the warning lights for low fuel with at least 100 miles before empty (assuming you could use all 20 gallons of the tank)?
2. What is the stated fuel reserve for the Altima Hyb. before the warning light is activated?
3. Has anyone addressed this issue with a Nissan dealer?
I have had my car serviced by a Nissan dealer and they had no idea how to address my questions.
Thank in advance for any information.
well the "shifting from 2nd
well the "shifting from 2nd to 5th" is really more to do with the CVT, since the car figures you stopped accelerating, it will drop to the lowest gear possible to conserve fuel.
the max I've ever filled was 19.5 gallons and I hadn't run out of gas yet. do you ever have problems with the gas needle reaching the top or the bottom? it should be about 1 needle width above the high and low tick marks

not sure what you mean, can you describe what you're doing?
I have a 2008 Altima 2.5 SL,
I have a 2008 Altima 2.5 SL, and i have the same problem, i average 480 to 500+ miles with a tank, which should be 20 gallons, but so far the max i could fill was a little over 18 gallons, which makes me think every time the light goes on i probably have left another 2 gallons in my car which would last me another 60 miles... I've tried finding answers in different places but i haven't. i'm probably gonna drive all i can and test it myself.
