Question late fuel level sending units

David, as you know the 202 as well ALL late mb fuel level sending units are well JUNK!!!! as a former mb tech when the 202 first came out we tried several ways to check the fuel level sending units... first you need to drain the tank at both ends... then use the mb factory tool to remove the sending unit to inspect the contact on the fuel level sending unit and its contact on the slide that goes off <open resistance > when checked with a ohm meter and since its out you might as well replace it. note when the problem was first found we would clean the contact with a ERASER YES A PENCIL ERASER!!! it would work because the sending units were on a national back order at the time David dont feel bad my 2000 e class has the same JUNK fuel level sending unit i replaced it 3 times and well you know the story

good luck and the best way to check the fuel level is to
just write down the miles yeah kinda primative
