Mines just started to do this. Had 1/2 a tank in, started up and the sender went up to half, then dropped to empty, stayed at empty for a bit and then went back up. I since filled up to the top and the gauge went tot he top as expected, but has n't moved since.The fuel gauge of my 1998 W202 C280 has started to show full and is not reducing with mileage. Grateful for any advice as to how this may be rectified. Hopefully at a modest cost.
I would check the conections on the sender unit. In my youth,and to my shame I used to disconect these wires on any car I hired, on hand back the car showed a full tankThe fuel gauge of my 1998 W202 C280 has started to show full and is not reducing with mileage.

I have the same issue on one of my 124's! Doesnt bother me to be honest, but will look into getting sorted if inexpensive. Billy where are you getting yours fitted? And also who services your 124? I need to get both of mine serviced!LOL! all our gauges have gone bonkers it seems!
Mines doing the same thing, got a new sender, will fit it this week when i get the gyal serviced. Lets see if it does the trick.
Also if its any help into costings of these things, although ive a 124 im assuming the w202 isnt far off.
