The cap gasket seems to be in good shape in the sense that it would prevent fuel from splashing out, though not from being forced out under pressure. I could not locate the filler neck assemblage in the trunk with a cursory examination. I pulled away the hard plastic liner a little, but it looked like the filler neck was hidden behind a metal body part and I was in a hurry to get home and then to the bank, so I put off a more thorough exam.
It did occur to me that the Benz might have begun to produce, rather than to burn diesel. While this thought was rather appealing, as I might be able to fill my truck's tanks from the Benz's I figured that the engine would probably have to be turning in reverse to accomplish this alchemy and my hopes were dashed by the damning evidence of still having four forward gears and only the usual one reverse gear :-)
