The clues are from OP's post#1 that described the sequence of events, the incident was related to low fuel on a F30.

The next thought process is that, in your 65k miles of your lease, in 3 years(almost 22k a year), how many times your running tank low is at sustained high rpm?

Also note the issue is LPFP overheating, so cold temp actually can help to mitigate heating up when fuel is low.

Another clue is that, not common knowledge of those who lease and don't own F30 beyond first 3 years, or don't currently have a F30, that F30 actually has an ELW on LPFP.
