Gas Fill Problem Service Bulletin

For those who have an issue filling up with gas (see my previous post), my 05 525 gas tank was replaced. According to the dealer notes SIB 160205 was used. Hopefully this will be of help to others on this forum

Don't know yet if the issue has been resolved since they filled up my tank and I'll have to wait a while to refill.

How many others here have had this problem? The Service Advisor told me that this issue is common with the e6o's.

The gas pump will act is if the tank is already full after only 1-2 gallons pumped even if there is still more than 10+ gallons to go. So in a normal gas fill, one can't rely on the auto shutoff feature of the gas pump/nozzle.
