Hello and welcome to JustAnswer BMW,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to assist you today.

 

Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you.

 

there are lots of rumors and talk of this helping to keep things lubricated, etc, but I personally would not do it, nor does BMW recommend it

 

People run their diesel BMWs to hundreds of thousands of miles without doing this, there is no need to - and it could potentially foul your fuel system or emissions system as well

 

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your repairs.
