The recall concerns only 1.6-litre Juke and 1.2-litre Micras.
The UK announcement comes after Nissan North America published recall details for its Juke, Infiniti M and Infiniti QX models yesterday.
Nissan said the fuel tank's fuel-pressure sensor may not be tightened properly, and could come away after continued vibration.
Ultimately, this could mean a fuel leak and a potential risk of fire.
The UK recall will be issued in the next couple of weeks, while Nissan UK finds the customers affected.
