suppressing a fuel tank on c240 2003
I am the owner of a C240 2003 4-matic. For the second time I am having problems with the fuel level sensors which are incorporated into the fuel pumps. That fact (that you cannot buy the fuel level sensor separately), plus the fact that this car has 2 fuel tanks, makes this fuel indicator problem a very pricy one and makes wonder why in the world Mercedes benz, in all its wisdom, did these 2 very stupid things:
1) Incorporate the fuel sensor INTO the fuel pump (so that you cannot replace it unless you replace the whole fuel pump) and
2) To make matters worse, put 2 (TWO) fuel tanks in the darn thing.
So, I ask: what happens if I suppress one of the tanks? will it work still?
