I've had my 260E for a month now, covered 1000 miles, and filled up 4 times (averaging 27mpg).
Each time I take the cap off, there's a rush of air.
I understand that fuel is cold when underground and expands a bit in the tank as it warms up, but this seems a bit more than I'd expect.
I am changing the in tank fuel pump on my 639 115 vito

Can anyone who know for sure (not guessing) what the round component next to the fuel sending unit is.
I been to my local mercedes parts, and he could not see that second component on any of his diagrams, nor find the part via part number stamped on it (i think it reads...
I was losing fluid from the join at the bottom of the expansion tank on my ML55. I bought a replacement tank but it was only when I removed the old tank I saw a rubber O ring seal, which wasn't on the new one.
I called Kms who supplied it but they said the tank doesn't come with the O ring...

Hoses you will need
Hose connectors you will need
I passed my test in September 1990 and I've never once been to the pump and not brimmed the tank.
I seem to chat to many people that just put a set amount in say £10, £20 etc.
So who fills up completely, and who fills up with whatever they feel like? :o
I've been lurking here for quite some time using the search function and have managed to perform quite a few jobs myself on my 02 ML 500 as a result, including transmission oil/filter change, engine oil change, secondary air injection pump service, EGR clean and more recently work on the cooling...
I've noticed that when my reserve light comes on there must be about an 8th of a tank left going off the needle position.

When looking into buying the car I read that mileage on a full tank between 600-700 miles,I took this with a pinch of salt!!
Ive spoke to two people who...
Due to a change in circumstance I now have to park my ML facing up-hill on my drive and it appears that the fuel is draining back to the tank as it takes ages to start which it never did (and doesn't) facing downhill. With a full tank it will still start OK but at 1/2 to 3/4, no...
I have the " common " tank baffle rattle problem, and have read here that many have fixed this issue in various ways ( without having to shell out for the tank replacement ).
