I have a brand new 2000 E430 with less than 1000 miles. The fuel gauge stopped working! With the gas tank full, the needle only points to half. The dealer says that it is a common problem. They blame the additives in California fuel for corroding the fuel sensor. Are they pulling my leg? How can the fuel corrode in such a short time?
I did a quick search here on the board and found people with similar problem with their 1999 CLK's. I cannot believe MB has not corrected the problem! Will I continue to have this problem?
