I'm right there with you. I can't recall having ever run out of fuel. Even with my dirt bikes which have no fuel gauge.

Isn't the fuel used to cool the fuel pump? If so then it's possible the lack of fuel caused it to over heat and fail.

We don't know why it was detuned (or even if it was instead of just not tuned to full potential). What we do know is BMW markets the car as a 300+ HP/torque car and that's what BMW delivers. You got...
