1995 E300D Fuel tank size

Even with the power of Google, I am having a hard time finding out the fuel tank capacity of a 1995 E300D.

Thank you.

This is why I ask, there is conflicting information out there. I thought the Diesel had a 90 L tank (23 gallons)?

Its a 23.8 gallon tank, unique to the diesel 124 of 1995 only. All others, gas and diesel, had the run of the mill 18.5.

I might add, the 500E had the 23.8 gallon tank as well...

Same as the OP 95 W124 w/606.910.

The OP needs to go to the russian site and plug his VIN in and see what tank his came with. The EPC shows 70 and 90L tanks with part numbers 1244700304 & 1244700004 respectively. http://detali.ru/cat/oem_mb2.asp?TP=1&F=124131&M=606%2E910&GA=722%2E435&GM=717%2E433&CT=F&cat=44Q&SID=47&SGR=015&SGN=01

I got my info from edmunds.com.

I also have the original mercedes benz brochure for the 1995 e-class. I know the 95 E300 has the 23.8 g tank, that is how they bolstered there ad campaign back then for "over 600 miles/tank".

Perhaps it was standard issue on the USA spec diesels of that vintage.
