Those figures are on the money from what I have read in the past. I wish my 99 could hold a few gallons.

ML 350 and 500

22.0 US gallons (83.0 liters)

including a reserve of 3.2 gallons (12 liters)

It never went below the light indicator which was why I took the extra 8 mile trip to the cheaper gas station after dropping my carpool off.

RE: How many gallons of gas does the ML hold?

From Wolfgang's ML site: http://www.whnet.com/4x4/shoptalk.html
Fuel tank capacity tested
A 1999 ML320 was driven on flat roads until it died from a lack of fuel. At this point the needle pointed to 0 fuel, to the middle of the bar. It took a total of 19.5 gallons to fill the tank to the first click-off at the station and the gauge indicated full. But with some effort and a very slow flow rate with repeated click-offs it was possible to fill in another 2.5 gal for a total of 22.0 gallons, although this is not recommended.

Tank capacity 98-01 19.2 gal - 72 liter including reserve fuel
Tank capacity 02-05 22.0 gal - 83 liter including reserve fuel
Tank capacity ML55 AMG 24.5 gal - 93 liter including reserve fuel
Reserve fuel quantity 3.2 gal - 12 liter

When the reserve light illuminates at least the reserve fuel quantity should be left in the tank
