DETROIT - Nissan is recalling about 7,800 Infiniti SUVs because the fuel gauges can show gas in the tank when there isn't any.

Company officials in the United States say the recall affects the JX35 from the 2013 model year.

It was not immediate clear if any of the vehicles, which were built from Feb. 15 of this year through June 22, were sold in Canada.

Nissan says tube inside the gas tank could be in the wrong place, which could prevent a float from dropping as fuel is used and cause an inaccurate reading on the dashboard fuel gauge.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that as a result, the SUVs could run out of gas unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash.

Nissan will fix the problem for free. Owners will be notified by mail, and repairs are expected to start Sept. 4.
