Search: Fuel sending unit.

If you have verified that the gauge works.
(OBD hidden functions Menu 21)
Then I would guess sending unit.

Have you replaced the fuel pump, or know that it has been replaced?

You might consider this a polite warning from your car, to replace your fuel pump.

My Ride: 325ti
Not sure how useful this will be, but I had a similar issue recently, the gauge moved but what it thought was quarter of a tank was actually empty (discovered this at 60mph on a dark, country road, fu BMW, thank you Wiltshire police lol! ).

Anyway, on my 03 325ti, they replaced a sensor thing and it works fine now. It waasss *goes to find paperwork*... "n/s fuel level sender unit"
