7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Charcoal canister replacement

Hi all. I am having some issues with filling up the gas tank in my 07 750. The gas pump keeps shutting off prematurely. When I attempt to fill up the tank, the car smells of gasoline for few days after. I don't see any obvious gas leaks when the car is parked in my garage. I do not have a check engine light on.

I read up on the issue on this website, and it seems like most people recommend replacing the charcoal canister. My main question is whether I will also need to replace any other pertinent components in the area (e.g. vent valve? or solenoid?). I just want to make sure that I get this done correctly.

Thank you.

I don't remember a gas smell when I had problems filling up. It's a pretty easy DIY. I just replaced the canister. No problems filling up after that.
