Or maybe why put anything that says diesel in that area? There are times when others fill up who aren't used to diesels. Sometimes people have brain farts and need to be reminded. Not a bad thing ,...

I was just wondering whether or not BMW made a different color gas cap, or is one even made, to differentiate gas from diesel. I was thinking a yellow one will work. It may help some who "forget"...

Not a trick, just luck. When I'm going fast, I am either by myself or ahead of at the front of a pack. Lidar can an isolate any given car in a pack, not just the first one.
