There is a flotation operated sender inside the gas tank, which provides information to the gauge.
Either your sender has died or become corrupted by taking on gas, or the gauge has died. Probably easier cheaper and faster to have the gauge checked out at a dealer than to pull the tank out. Might be a common problem on that model or year. Ask a dealer service department how much to figure it out.

As a first solution not being a BMW expert, sorry...try checking the fuse panel as in some cars, the instrument cluster is run via one or 2 fuses.

My toyota rav 4 year 1997, the fuel indicator is not working (dead, even if I pour full tank), what could be the problem

The fuel gage or the fuel sender unit inside fuel tank.
the sender unit is hard to check because is in the fuel tank.
the gage is easier, remove the cluster with the key on connect and disconnect the 2 connectors in the back of the cluster if the gage moves the problem is the sender unit inside the fuel tank.

Gas gauge in the instrument panel not working

The number most common cause of this problem is that the gas gauge sending unit (consists of a float and a variable resistor) inside the gas tank is defective. To replace the sending unit in the gas tank, the tank must be removed from the car. The fuel gauge sending unit is sold as a complete module that also contains the electric fuel pump.

2001 Echo stalls when coming to a stop at stoplights etc. The Dealer could not replicate the problem, however it continues to happen.

this could be a fews things...Bad fuel or water in tank.. Replace fuel filter and put some high octane boost in the tank and fill up with 93 octane. You may need a tune up

Instrument Panel Shuts Off

pull the cluster out and check for soft set coupler check all couplers on the fuse panel one sounds to be soft set or you have a bad ground best to take to a dealer but i work for honda builing civics and it is very comon to find a soft set coupler when we do our checks on line so maybe one has slipped through but it is one of those 2 things i am 99% sure

2006 Chevy Trailblazer fuel gauge stays on empty

Could be a
1. Fuse - not likely, I'd expect other instrument panel problems.
2. Broken wire from fuel gauge
3. Bad fuel sender in fuel tank. Normally requires dropping the tank.

Vehicle is not that old, would think it is still under warranty?

Takes forever to fuel up

I have found with various cars that the speed the gas is pumped at makes a huge difference. Try wiggling the input nozzle around so it may be parallel to the ground, and just experiment. Or just slow down your pumping speed. Sometimes more goes in faster than the fuel tank neck can handle.
