    Hi RLE,

    I have a 2010 C300 Sport and the Fuel gauge is acting soooo crazy. In the same day, it marks Full and Empty. Someone told me that it is the Fuel Sender/Sending unit. So, my questions is, How can I change it? Do I have to set down the gas tank? or I can access it thru the rear seat. what is the MB part serial or #? PLEASE, advise.
    Finally, thanks very much for sharing your knowledge.

    I can see that. The factory oil measuring "tool" is used on many MB engines to accurately measure oil levels for calibrated consumption tests, among other things. It indeed does stick out the top of your tube because some engine or other uses a much longer dipstick, perhaps a truck engine. I own this tool because my 2001 C320 (thank God that's gone) had no dipstick and I felt that I needed one so spent the $110 for it. It soon became apparent that the V-6 gassers don't burn or leak oil so in short order I quit measuring it.

    The face of the tool has two marked areas, one near the upper end and one near the lower, marked in what may be millimeters. The tool is inserted and removed and the level is observed and recorded. That number is then looked up on the chart for the engine being measured which shows the quantity. This document is printed out from the dealer tech's laptop and that's where I got the one for my M271.

    So you can see that it takes both the tool and the relevant chart to use it for it's designed purpose.

    Now that you understand, I'll be glad to sell you mine for fifty bucks if you still think you can't live without it.

    BTW, I'm just passing by here since my diesel MB period ended in 1985. >>

    IF you still have it, how can I pay you for it?

    If I send you my personal check for the $50 and you make sure it is good, will you then mail it to me?
