2005 x3 2.5

Just recently had the X3 at my local mechanic to clear the 4x4 and SES light, both off now. Changed the oil because the previous owner used conventional. Started up strong and drove it back to my home, let it sit overnight, started it up--strong, puttered a little, then idled fine until about two minutes, started to putter again, now won't start. Bad gas? Catalytic converter? Have to take it again--hope this doesn't become a money pit. Any ideas?
