Default 2011 E92 DCT car stalled on its own?

Anyone else experience the car stalling on its own in auto mode with the DCT?

Was running low on gas (25 miles left on range) filled up at gas station. Left gas station in auto and in low speed. Slowed down for traffic ahead and between slowing from 15mph to 0mph the car jerked a bit and stalled.

Feels just like if I were driving a manual and slow to a stop without stepping on the clutch and car stalls.

Anyone else experience this before?

Had to step on brake and hit the start button to fire car back up.

I just hope it doesn't happen again.

I have a 2011 with 500 miles only

I would not be letting especially a brand new car get down to 25 Miles to Empty in the first place. May have had air in the system hence the cough.

If it does happen again, straight to the dealership you must go.

I had the same experience in mine, one time only, although it shut off twice, at stop lights about 5 minutes apart. My initial suspicion was bad gas, maybe diluted with too much alcohol. But the gas was from one of my usual sources, not supposed to have any alcohol in it, and no problem before or since.

6500 miles and no issues with mine. I've had it down to 15 miles left till empty. I'd ask the dealer.

25 miles left in tank!! man not wise at all...i agree with air pocket theory. BMW's do not like it when they get less than 50 miles left on tank...

i know it's not safe, but i used to drive my e46 m3 until it marked 5 or less miles, drove it to 0 miles a couple times too, it was stick but never felt the air pocket theory.
