For ED cars as of now or in next few months: get ED car with full tank of gas?

Does it continue to be true that you get ED car with full tank of gas?

Yup, took delivery 12/1 and full tank of gas in the M5. Wasnt the case on my first ED (late 2011). Think I had less than a quarter tank that time.

As of now, yes. Nobody can predict the future.

We picked up 2/2 and got a full tank of gas.

I mentioned to our delivery guy that I thought it was great.

He said his understanding was that the U.S. dealers pushed for it as it was something that the U.S. customers wanted.

Of course many of us had heard it was a fire safety issue at the Welt.

He said the way they ultimately got around it is the majority of ED delieveries are still Europeans by a huge margin and they don't receive a full tank.

So as a ratio of gallons of fuel vs. fuel tank capacity they are still below the safety requirements and making all of us U.S. customers happy.

Long story but as of 2/2 Full Tank

At check-in this morning (2/27), lady said there would be quarter tank and gave me directions to the nearest gas stations. Our greeter-guy said there would be a quarter tank, possibly more. Picked up car and tank was full.

No one seemed to know for certain. Nice surprise.

That quarter tank stuff does not apply to Americans. We have been getting full tanks for months now.

Do Canadian EDs get a full tank of gas? Or are we being ripped off there as well?

Same exactly here. Picked up the 535 in December of 2011 and it had a 1/4 tank. This time it was full. I wonder it the dealer will gas it up on re-delivery?

Just picked up mine last week with a full tank at the Welt. Told me to drop it off with about 1/4 tank left. Done. Wonder what I will get at re-delivery.

I think it's up to the Dealer. Mine always give me a nicely prepped car with the tank full.

Injecting a little humor?

FWIW on our most recent ED we also got a full tank and were told only US EuropeanDelivery cars get it. Curious about the inquiry regarding Canadian EDs.
