About Fuel Tank Strapss

The fuel tank is one of the primary elements of the fuel system. It is a container, mounted on a bracket, which is used to store the petrol needed for internal combustion in the engine. Mercedes-Benz fuel tank straps are part of the fuel tank mounting system which helps to keep the fuel tank securely in place. 

The fuel tank, and therefore also the fuel tank straps, is located on the opposite side of the vehicle to the engine for safety reasons.  Fuel tank straps tend to be manufactured from stainless steel or rubber. 

Strap material, end connector styles, length, thickness, and surface finishing are all vehicle dependent. Fitting the Mercedes-Benz fuel tank straps will ensure perfect compatibility with the make and model of your vehicle. Fuel tank straps are usually sold in pairs. It is essential to make sure the fuel tank straps are fastened into place securely and correctly; not too tight or too loose. If the fuel tank straps are fixed too tightly, this can dent or crush the fuel tank.

Rusted, warped, cracked or broken fuel tank straps should be replaced as soon as possible. Mercedes-Benz fuel tank straps are manufactured to be compatible with the make and model of your vehicle, offering the ideal replacement part. If the fuel tank is not kept securely in place or properly aligned this can be a fire hazard in a crash situation. 

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.
  • 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.
  • Mercedes Benz cars have always been a big part of the Jurassic Park films, but the first movie went all out, with the stars emerging from a red Mercedes GLE Coupe before walking down the red carpet. Mercedes cars are also used throughout the film franchise.
