Question Fuel tank capacity

The manual says that the fuel tank holds 28 Gal, but then it says 23.4 as "lmp"(?). Can someone enlighten me on what the actual capacity is (I refilled with the empty fuel light indicator on and it would only take 23.5 Gal) and how much is approx. left when the fule light comes on? It seems to be more than what the manual says.

Thanks!

Re: Fuel tank capacity

It does hold 28 gallons. The "imp" is Imperial gallons which doesn't apply to the US. My light goes on at approx. 24 gallons used, so there should still be 4 gallons until empty.

Re: Fuel tank capacity

Clint is correct, Imp. is for our Northern neighbors in Canada, their gallons are a little larger than ours.

Re: Fuel tank capacity

the Imperial measurement is the British form, there is like 4.8 US quarts to 1 Imperial gallon. Wonder why Nissan bothers to even mention Imperial.

Re: Fuel tank capacity

Great, thanks. The way the manual is written, you'd think you'd need to find the nearest pump asap, but there's about 30-60 miles of driving left when the light goes on and depending on how lead-footed the driver is. The next time I'm Vancouver, I'll remember that .

Umm - I think we'd be talking in liters in that case.

Re: Fuel tank capacity

I ran 62 miles at 85mph after my light came on and when I tanked up 27.25 gallons went in. I was a bit worried when that next exit showed 12 miles away.

Re: Fuel tank capacity

there is approx 25% more volume in an Imperial gallon VS. a US Gallon.
Imperial gallons are used pretty much wherever Britian held the land as a colony.
Canada went all metric but if they use gallon, it is imperial, not US.
In the middle east, imperial gallons are used for gas (at a rediculous price of less than $1)

at least no one said this type of imperial

Re: Fuel tank capacity

My light came on today and I still had 7.5 gallons left :-/ that light is so off it's irritating sometimes. Anyways I got 10.5 mpg being gently on the pedal... I hate this winter mix.

Not to change the subject of this thread, but can anyone fill me in on this "winter mix" fuel? I've noticed a DRAMATIC drop off in MPG in about the last month, and I've been scratching my head wondering what's up...

Re: Fuel tank capacity

An Imperial gallon is four litres. The Canadians have used the Imperial Gallon for over 40 years. These days, I notice all their pumps are calibrated in litres. Guess it lessens the "sticker shock" of quoting Imperial gallons.
