I had the same problem this weekend. My fuel gauge read 3/4 tank for a while and the range on my OBC read between 93-97 miles. I posted on the M3 mailing list and someone told me to pull fuse #31 and turn the ignition (the car won't start). Then put the fuse back in and start, it'll reset the fuel gauge and the range on the OBC. I tried this morning and it worked!
'98 M3/2 20600 miles

: I have a 96 ///M3 with about 34,000 miles on it.
: Last time I filled up with gas the fuel gauge did not reset. It shows that there is no gas in the tank. This has happened before but has gone away after a few starts. I heard this cah happen when you leave the door open when refueling. I did not leave the door open. Are there any quick fixes. Can you pull a fuse and reset the gauge.
: Any help would be greatly appreciated.
