I have a hard time imagining it would help that much.
Do you think your current mechanical fan clutch is working properly ?
Our ML500 already has the electric fan you're referencing, and MPG is still so-so.
What is your MPG now ?
This looks like a reproduction aftermarket part. If it works well, that's a pretty good price.
I think they're 2 to 2.5x that for the stock part, if memory serves.
I've learned that the V-8 ML's are just a hungry beast. That goes double if you are doing lots of stop & go or mixed highway miles.
The only time I've said: "Wow, pretty good MPG !" was on long road trips at steady state speed...just sayin !

Gone, and fondly remembered:
1975 240D - 4 speed manual, power nothing
1984 190E 2.3 - Cute, reliable & slow
1983 300SD - Great highway tourer, 28mpg
