In Reply to: What else should be checked when getting gas? posted by Rob on September 26, 1999 at 19:20:52:
: Hi everyone,
: I have a 328Ci with about 500 miles on it and was wondering what routine maintenance checks people perform when they fill up with gas, i.e. do people check the oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, etc., tire pressure every time? Or should this stuff be checked every 500 miles, or at some other interval? Thanks in advance for any advice.
I double check the gas cap after every fill-up. The first time the attendant filled the car, he didn't put on the cap tight. It eventually tripped the dash light and I had to take it to the dealer to have it reset.
The light will reset itself if you wait a few days so I am told...I couldn't stand the light on since my car was only 5 days old.
In Oregon, there is no self-serve gas, so now I am very careful.
