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
