Re: fuel sensor strip # 5
I bet if we took a poll we would find out that BMW has a major problem with their fuel strips (DUH). I am sure they do not want to issue a full recall of all models with this strip in the fuel tanks, very expensive. I would contact the agency in charge of Gov't recalls (NHTSA) and issue a complaint. This could be a major safety issue for BMW. I once complained to Ford for so long that they reimbursed me for a defective trunk support on my explorer in the 90's. A recall was issued 6 months later. They tended to fail and break peoples backs. Happened to my neighbor in Kansas City 3 Times. Its more than likely that your local dealer will not help you because they have no power in these matters and BMW probably does not want a large law suit against them from every BMW owner who could potentially have this problem. This sensor has quit on me once on a 2009 GS with less than 1000 miles on the odometer. I now have an RT.
