Thanks Seattle!! I will try that when I get home... What I don't understand is why the gauge would continue to operate correctly (still head toward empty as fuel was used) after I filled up on our trip, but from the point it was at before the fill up...

On another note, I see you also have an E39 (or two)... I just sold my 98 540i sport and miss it enough to get a newer one; maybe a 2001... I sold my 98 with 253K miles... It has been, by far the best car I've ever owned!! The original fuel pump lasted over 240K miles...

Okay, enough of that... Thanks again!!!
