: Anyone ever had trouble inserting the fuel nozzle? (I'm not joking!). The "flap" under the gas cap leading to the fuel tank was stuck closed. I had to force the nozzle in and out to fuel the car. And yes it was unleaded gas. Thoughts?
: '95 530i 5-speed
I have a 95 530ia and that happens to me periodically. My car was in for service and I told the service manager about it and he tried to explain to me the basics on how to pump gas!!!
The explanation I got from the technician is that some pumps are ultra sensitive and will shut off. Just a hint, if it is raining I never pump gas unless there is a roof over my head in case I have to spoon feed my car its gas!
