So to confirm - the car runs fine if you fill up the fuel tank, but runs out of gas while showing approx 1/4 tank?



Assuming the above is true, do a google search for posts by andrew wynn on the anatomy of the e53 gas tank system, and the usual trouble spots. I don't remember off the top of my head, but there are frequent failure points that disrupt the capability of siphoning fuel from one side of the tank to the other. I seem to recall replacement of an o-ring usually solving the problem?


Good luck.
