Engine shudders when fuel hits 1/4 tank
I have a problem with my W124 E220 '94 Mercedes. Whenever my fuel gauge hits the 1/4 mark, the engine starts to shudder like it's going to stop and I lose near to all power. This happens over a matter of minutes, and once it starts, there's no going back. If I stop at lights, the engine usually dies and I have trouble turning it on and keeping it reving. I usually manage to drive to a gas station if it's not too far, having tried this only a handful of times.
Now, since I'm supposed to have about 25% of my fuel left, so I start to think there's definitely something wrong, but my lack of knowledge about the mechanics of the car kinda stop me from knowing what.
Does anyone have a clue of what it might be?
