There could be a check valve in the line that prevents it from drain with the
auxiliary pump deenergized. It could be leaking by. There was an article about
something similiar about five months ago in the BMWCCA Magazine Roundel. It
ended up that this lift pump was not working, causing the car to die while still
at 1/2 tank of gas. Just coudn't get the fuel from one side of the tank to
another due to a weak pump.
