Here's a novel idea: How about keeping an eye on the gas gauge? When it gets below a quarter tank, put more gas in!

Why don't you drive the car for 502 miles and see if you run out of gas. If you don't, then take the car in and have it checked.

Absolutely. 7500 miles/oil changes, etc. You can buy BMW OEM parts online for far less than at the Stealership. Tischer BMW is one example.
