I have to replace my 240D's tank and the one I found today is not the same as mine.

How many different W123 sedan tanks are there and which vehicles' tanks will fit in a 240D?

The one they tried to sell me has the fuel sender in the middle, but my 240D's fuel sender sits close to the opposite end of the filler pipe.

Some but not all 240D's came from the factory with a plastic tank in an effort to reduce weight. The plastic tanks become saturated over time and will eventually allow fuel to start seeping out. I installed a tank from my parts car, which was a 240D but had the metal tank instead of the stupid plastic one. The only difference between the two in regard's to how they install is that you won't need the transverse metal strap with the metal tank. It uses the existing mounting studs on each side. It's very easy but messy.

the tank from the 300d's will also fit into the 240d without issue. (enjoy the extra couple gallons too)
