    HI

    Welcome to BimmerforumsUk

    Hmm.
    There should be another strap holding the tank up in addition to the fuel nozzle which is wedged into the filler port...

    However it is not a desirable way to be driving and should only be driven (gently) to the garage to get it replaced...

    A leaking or falling off fuel tank right by the exhaust is a BIG fire risk and as such should be fixed as a matter of urgency...
