I haven't had that happe on my 08, but I wouldn't be surprised. The gas gauge isn't calbrated well at all, and distance till empty calculations are all over the map all the time. For example, I drove to work Friday and got there with 92 miles left. Got on it at lunch and rode 2 miles on surface streets, and when I got the the restaurant it showed 56 miles till empty. Rode 10 miles to the BMW shop after that and it bumped up to 72. Gas gauge was showing a little over a 1/4 tank to about 1/8 at various ponts throughtout this little adventure. I filled up as soon as I saw a station.

The shortest distance between two points is for people who don't ride!
