Hello:

In most cases this issue is caused by one of two things. First, it could be due to a bad EVAP solenoid or other EVAP system component near the fuel tank that is causing a disruption of fuel capacity to the ECU, which creates that estimate on your dashboard. Second, it’s possible that you have an electrical gremlin that is causing the display to not function correctly. The best way to resolve this issue is to have a professional mobile mechanic complete an electrical problems inspection to determine what is causing this to occur on your 2011 BMW X6.
