Subject: <E36> fuel guage
Last friday I had my '95 M3 in to the dealer for a fuel odor problem.
They changed the seal on my fuel tank sending unit and some hoses
coming off the tank. They said it was a common problem so watch for
the fuel smell after driving the car for a while.
Saturday I was near empty on the tank, so I stopped to fill it.
I did something I've never done before when filling the tank,
I left the key in the ign, in the accessory position.
After filling and driving away, I noticed my guage didn't show
full, it was still down on E. The range also still said 30 miles
on the OBC.
Today it still didn't work, so I brought it to Camelback BMW.
They pulled out fuse #21 for 10seconds, then reinstalled it.
Presto, the fuel guage now works!
Moral of the story, key belongs in your pocket when fueling the car.
