First Diesel and MB

I recently bought a 1985 MB 300D turbo diesel. It has some issues and im not sure if i should just sink some cash into it to better it overall or if i should just leave it alone since i leave for the navy soon. Its got some interior issues im not really worried about, but the gas gauge suddenly stopped working and my acceleration is to the point where i need to floor it just to get goin. Its going for inspection soon and now im afraid it wont pass, any helpful ideas or advice?
