it shuts off the fuel if it senses an accident. that way you arent continuously leaking fuel if something got cut or broken open. leaking fuel is all bad, and a potential fire hazard. however, sometimes if your vehicle thinks you got in an accident it will shut off your fuel and you have to manually turn it back on

I understand now.

I originally thought that it was a switch the USER could flip and shut the fuel off.

^^ my '99 had a manual switch... I'm assuming the Grab-Her does too but I haven't found it (and haven't looked).

I know what good it is for an accident but why shut if off if he's pulled over on the freeway?? Or are you thinking it shut itself off and you wanna turn it back on??

You can, when changing fuel filters or working on the fuel system.

Step 1: Call your nissan dealer
Step 2: tell them that your brand new Nissan broke down on the freeway
Step 3: Tow into nissan dealer
Step 4: Have the vehicle fixed under warranty
Step 5: Enjoy your just repaired car

Those new 370Z's are some sweet *** rides I dont like the 350's though they are almost the same exact car! I would still rather have a G37!
