About Fuel Gauges

The Mercedes-Benz fuel gauge shows the level of fuel in the tank.

Normally located on the dashboard, the fuel gauge enables the driver to see how much fuel is left in the tank. The driver would use this information to fill the car up with fuel as and when required. 

Working with the fuel gauge is the fuel sender unit which measures the level of fuel in the fuel tank. The fuel level data is sent to the car's fuel gauge, usually within easy view on the dash board. Together, they provide the driver with accurate fuel level read outs to help prevent the car running out of fuel.

The fuel gauge shows the level of fuel in the tank. As the fuel is used, the floats lower in the fuel sender unit and the fuel gauge reflects this by slowly moving down. It helps the driver to make sure the fuel levels don't get too low. The worst case scenario is running out of fuel. Running out of fuel can damage the engine. Running a car on low levels of fuel can also be harmful to engine components and the fuel system, including the fuel filter and fuel pump.

Problems with the fuel system should be fixed as soon as possible. If the fuel gauge is faulty this can affect the accuracy of the information displayed and could lead to the car running out of fuel. When replacing this part, it is vital that the replacement part is compatible with the car. Specifically engineered for the make and model of your vehicle, the Mercedes-Benz fuel gauge is the ideal choice.

Mercedes-Benz trivia

  • Most people think of silver when they think of a Mercedes, but that iconic colour was an accident. Just before a race in 1934, the white-painted W25 was found to be 1kg over the weight limit. The paint was quickly removed, the weight limit reached, and the car won the race.
  • Unlike most cars, Mercedes vehicles are not spray painted. Instead, they are completely submerged in anti-corrosion coating and primer. That means the protective liquid can get into every part of the car.
  • If you thought self-driving cars were all about Tesla, then it might surprise you to know that Mercedes Benz made an autonomously driving vehicle as early as 1995. It didn't gain popularity, but it became the foundation of the modern driving technology found in every Mercedes Benz.
  • Karl Benz obviously gave his name to the company, but the Mercedes part of the name comes from the daughter of his customer and friend, Emil Jellinek. Her name was (obviously) Mercedes, and it's still surprising that her name remains so attached to the iconic car brand.
  • That new car smell is always a delight, but a Mercedes owner gets to choose that smell. Perfume specialist Marc vom Ende created four different car smells for Mercedes Benz, called Sports Mood, Freeside Mood, Downtown Mood, and Nightlife Mood. They all smell a bit leathery.
