Question about 2008 BMW 3 Series
This is a very common malfunction in our cars, often due to a faulty/failing fuel door actuator. You can pull the fuse for it (I forget the # in the trunk fuse array but it's pretty easy to google and find out) or, easier, disconnect the actuator plug (right side of trunk above battery, clearly visible coming from behind the fuel door.) If you disconnect this and the problem goes away, then it is the cause. Just leave it disconnected, the only thing it will affect is the fuel door locking when the central locking is engaged. (If you're worried about syphoning then you can pay to have it replaced or DIY)
