MERCEDES BENZ C320 GAS PROBLEM

2002 Mercedes Benz C320 • 141,000 miles

Car dies from gas starvation (symptoms) when it has about 180 miles on a tank of gas. There is still gas in the tank and to fill it takes approx. 7 - 10 gallons and it will run fine again after fill up but at about half tank on the gauge it will re-exhibit the symptoms and stop. Any Ideas?

Did you find out what the problem was? I am having the same issue.

I have already changed the Fuel filter, checked the pressure from the fuel pump, cleaned the injectors, etc. Things that needed to be done for regular maintenance.

I can only think it is something to do with the 2 fuel level sensors, the fuel transfer pump (pump that keeps both sides of the tank level?), Or a clogged line somewhere in there.
