Fuel delivery issue

Okay, so this has happened twice now. I thought the first time maybe we got some bad fuel but it happened again yesterday. You will be driving along, the fuel gauge shows 3 carrots still on the, no low fuel, the gauges showed no issues. The car just cuts off, you will still be in drive but it just stops running. I've never experienced this before & it really concerns me. I maintain a great car & do most if not all work on my cars, as my DD is a Dodge Charger Mopar 11 edition. I'm puzzled by this issue with her car, being here in Germany with a American spec car can be tricky getting it serviced for some strange reason. I just wanted to post this & see if anyone could give me a idea of what this issue could be, I don't know if it could be the fuel pump or if there a bigger problem with fuel delivery. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

My first thought is a failing fuel pump. Its a bit of a known issue with these cars.

Not sure but a Google search reveals pages of articles on the problem. I know MINI North America expanded the warranty on the HP fuel pumps to 10 yr / 120,000 kms because of the failure rate. Not sure if that warranty will apply elsewhere but it appears that MINI is well aware of the problem. Might be worth a call / trip to your MINI dealer.

^^Thanks that looks to be only for 2007-2009 S Models. I've called a dealer here but they are wanting to charge me for the diagnostic check & if they find a issue, also wanting to charge me for the repair as well. They explained that this doesn't seem like a common issue that they heard of, I call BS & going to get other parties involved. I don't feel that I should have to pay for the repair when I truly believe they know what the issue is.

There are 2 fuel pumps. A low pressure and a high pressure pump. Mine went out at 25K miles. Do pressure readings of each pump and volume readings.

Well after many searches & many forum reads. Pulled the trigger on a new fuel pump for the R60 engine & BOOM issue is fixed. Thanks for all the help folks.
