I have a 1999 C-230K with about 230,000 miles on it. It is also on its fourth gas tank and this is now needing replacement. The problem manifests itself when the gauge shows 1/4 tank remaining but I run out of gas. When the car is filled up it only takes 12 gallons. As I understand it the tank is in two sections with a electric pump that transfers from one to the other. The Mercedes tech guys tell me that the pump has failed which results is about 4 gallons of fuel not being transferred and the car croaks. As I noted before this is the my fourth tank and it failed today (out in the middle of the boondocks). Is anyone else having this problem? If so, is there another solution other than paying $450 for a new tank?
Thanx,
Bill Baumgardner
