fuel gauge

Just wondering if this is normal for the X5 M...Every time I fill up with gas the fuel gauge never goes all the way to full (see below pic). Sometimes it will be a bit closer but never shows full

Same thing here. I have to make the pump click 4 or 5 times before I'm sure it's almost full while filling slowly. Even then, the fuel gauge doesn't stay at full very long (20-30 km) and rapidly falls down. It should be the contrary. I much prefer to have it stay longer in the 50%+ full zone, then falling under. At the limit, I would settle for a linear regression instead of what I'm feeling at the moment.

I also dislike how nozzle is so tight and how high it is located.

Lastly, the fuel warning comes on too soon. I believe it's at 1/5. I know it's possible to code it to 1/8.

I don't know if they have fixed it with the F85.
