Starting issue

Hello all!

New to the forum but not new to the E90. I filled up twice since I picked up my 325i and both times I drove until the fuel light came in. After filling up I couldn't restart at the station. Took me 3 tries with som assistance from the accelerator on the third try! Not sure what it could be! I'm thinking that it may be an evap issue!

Any thought???

Cheers!

Turns over without hesitation, just won't catch! That's what I don't understand! Only after I fill up

Not sure if the sea foam will help! Don't think it's an injector issue...any other thoughts?
