Re -fueling stall out

I have a 2019 330i and when refueling the vehicle stalls out while re-fueling. Anyone have the same problem and is this common.

Are u saying you refill the car while the engine is running???
If so you did a big no no and caused the issue.

Just a guess, but intentional safety feature to help prevent potentially fatal flash fires of gasoline vapor? Could also help prevent you from getting a ticket...leaving your engine running at the pump is illegal in a lot of places.

Interestingly, even with the engine off, the fuel gauge still works, so you can see the fuel level go up as you fill up.
Nothing special, but this is the first car I have seen that does this.
