Hi Guys,

I cannot pour more than 35L fuel into my 1993 r129 SL500.
After I left the car for 6-7weeks standing I saw that my instrument cluster shows I am low on fuel but after started the engine in 3-4seconds the needle went all the way up to between 1/2 and 3/4 level. So I noticed there will be some problems. So I took out the instrument cluster a got it repaired. But the said it should be all right. So it wasn't the instrument clusters fault.
I went to a gas station the other day when I realized I am again low on fuel ( although cluster still shows wrong quantity) and at the gas station I realized I am only able to fill 30-35L fuel into the tank.
As far as I know the capacity is 70L for these cars.
One of my Fuel pump broke down ?
Has anyone got similar problem in the past?

Thank you guys. I will try to play against the sensor. I will let the car sit for 4-5 weeks in the really hot summer time, and if the needle in the fuel level gauge goes back to where it belongs, I try to fill an another 30L fuel. Hereby I might be able to flee from replacing it.
