Perhaps the evaporative fuel system gets overloaded and affects fuel flow.

If anyone else has the hesitation, please post if this fixes your problem.

I haven't mentioned this before but there is definitely more of the hesitation when the fuel level goes below 1/4 - 1/8. It is very strange.

I wonder how BMW will compensate me for the 1 year and 20K of crappy driving?
