Others, including me, on occasion have experienced this problem.

Sometimes pumping the gas more slowly works, sometimes moving the nozzle around in the intake pipe works, sometimes another station works. No real answer. It only happens very occasionally for me, and has happened on other BMW models as well. I find it happens more in hot weather (vapor build up??).

Tell you friend to just experiment until a method is found that works.

When my friend pumps gas in her 128 coupe it stops every two to three dollars. What could cause this? The tanks is not full it happens at all levels. Is a 2009.
I was in Germany in a BMW training on the Nurburgring and we went to a filling station for refueling. One of the M3's was having the same trouble - so our instructor told him to turn on (but not start) the car. He had no problem filling the car then.

YOU ARE A DCS IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO JUST CHATA
Leave it to the experts. stick to what your wife tell you.
I don't understand your anger. I was attempting to help you, as I stated in my first post of this thread. :dunno:

As to the suggested solution, it could work in some cases, as could the other solutions that I posted. I have never heard of that solution (turn on the ignition) prior to this, over the number of years I have been reading BMW forums. Maybe it is a valid solution.

Sometimes I find it frustrating to deal with some of the rude people on forums. I put you in that catagory. :tsk:
