How well will a 70L fuel sending unit work on a 90L tank?

I only ask because I'm having a hard time finding the 90L one for my 95 E300D. Even the dealer would have to have it shipped from Germany. When I search for the part here, the 70L one comes up. Many Ebay listings say the 70L sender is compatible with my model even though (I think) the 95 only came with the 90L fuel tank. 70L sender is 124 42 00 04 and the 90L is 124 542 03 04. Thanks in advance.

It might show empty on your instrument panel before it really is!

If the 90L isn't any taller than the 70L, it ought to work. I'm guessing they got an extra 20L out of it, by going deeper.

Well, I just found out that aluminum cylinder for the 70L sender is 12.5 in long. If that matches the 90L one I'm thinking it should work. I'll try to measure it later today.

You are correct, at least partially. As it turns out, they actually are the same size, but the 70L sender gives different resistance values. So, for my car, the warning light will turn on at the right point but the needle only goes as far as the 1/4 mark if that is what it denotes. Unfortunately, I once again need to buy a sender. This one is good so I'm going to sell it in the parts section if I can.
