    I'm not sure if this is a cause for concern or a bad gas pump at the gas station and wonder if any of you all have any advice? I got gas for the first time on my BMW 330e as most of the time I do shorter trips, enough to run it on full electricity. When I got home, my garage smelled like...
  2. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I’ve owned my e36 for over 2 years and it’s always had unbearable gas fumes if I fill it above 8 gallons, I dont really know where to start relative to the evap system. I’ve inspected the fuel lines under the car and the fuel filler hose, and also I’ve done the fuel pump and filter. Anyone have...
  3. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hey all. I got tired of going through posts to see if this matter has come up before. (How does one search for a specific Z3 problem???) Anyway, the last time I started my car after a short drive, the fuel gauge stayed on empty; the needle does not move. I checked my fuses and didn't find one...

    So I've got a very new 2018 320i. What's the conventional wisdom on the appropriate grade of gas to use? First inclination is to stick with Premium/93, but is it really making a difference on engine wear, crud build-up, or anything else?
  5. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    This is the very first time that this has happened. This morning I went to start my car and head to work. I pulled out of the driveway, put the brake on and the car started shaking violently and had little acceleration. It was somewhat cold and according to my gas to empty timer I had 2 miles...

    Bought a VERY rought e36 a while ago and had it running decent for a bit until an injector lost its cap/oring and i decided to get all new injectors, as id had injector issues earlier on. Got the car back together and it starts and runs, but idles rough and spits a little gas out of the...
  7. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi, I'm looking for help trying to figure out a problem I've had for a while now: My 525i E60 N52 180,00kms is running out of gas at 1/4 tank. I've checked a few things like: 1- when i have around 1/4 gas left it ALL accumulates on the drivers side of the fuel tank, which is supposed to be the...

    I have 2009 328i with 96k miles, my problem recently started but have noticed the smell of gas fume for a couple of months now. I currently have a CC-ID-29 code on my car that just came on along with lousy gas fume coming from the back passenger side. Recently I was driving, and it lost power...

    I have a 2014 528i Xdrive, it's my first BMW so I was wondering what gas should I use. I only use Shell and they have Shell Regular, Shell Plus, and Shell V-Power Nitro. Will anything bad happen if I use shell plus instead of shell V-power?

    Hi all, I've noticed my 2017 330i has less acceleration than my 2014 328i did. I've always used regular gas. I know BMW recommends 91 octane. How many milliseconds from my 0-60 will I shave if I switch from 87 to 91 octane? I've been googling and I find a lot of opinions but no actual hard...
  11. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I'm newly registered to this forum, been referencing it for quite a while. I have a 1986 325es. New fuel pumps, in-tank and in-line. It is in great mechanical shape, fixing problems before, and as they arrive. I'm looking for guidance! My driver's side fuel tank is not filling. When I'm...
  12. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hey all! when i first got my 2013 528 XDrive and filled up the gas tank the computer used to read 450 miles, until just today that i noticed after filling up the tank it read 414 Miles. I found this very strange because online the original tank to Mileage capacity should be reading nearly 480...
  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I live a block away from gas station. Got home late last night from a trip and wanted to drop the kids home first. Car ran out of gas. I tried to start it about 5 times and it turned over but did not start so I pushed the car into garage. This morning I went and got 2gal of gas and filled it...
  14. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    My wife has been putting 87 octane In the car, And now it is running like crap. I put octane boost in and it's not seeming to do anything. I put a computer on it this morning and it's showing misfires on 1,3,5. Should I start with just replacing the spark plugs before I worrie about the coils...

    How often do you refresh the gas in your i3 REX?

    Hello I have a 2007 bmw 328i it was working and then the next day it wouldn't turn on. I think it's the battery but I'm not sure. When I turn it on I hear a click and the cluster lights go dim. Does it seem like the battery? I'm going to take it to get charged tomorrow so hopefully that is it...
  17. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So I jut cleaned my MAF sensor and I noticed that once I replaced it my car would not allow me to use the gas if my foot was on the brake. Also when the car is cold after I start it my RPMs will raise if I press on the brake. How do I fix this?
  18. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have a plastic gas tank on my 530, i will never understand why plastic, i guess for weight reduction, but it bottomed out on a trailer with a flat tire, and slit a couple of thin cuts in my tank, a new one is out of the question, but a used one isnt too expensive, but i wonder about the job of...
  19. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hello, My 4.8i is showing 9.4 mpg for fuel consumption. The needle shows instant decrease when I drive for 5 min after filling the car with fuel. Note that I drive really slowly and smoothly. Please if anyone can help and tell me what to do I'll be really thankfull. Thank you.
