Are there screens in the Mercedes Gas filler neck that would prohibit
the siphoning of gas? I try to keep my 99 E55 and 88 300E full in the
case of emergencies and wish to know if this tactic will suffice to
serve as a store of gas for use such as with a portable gas generator.
My ife is unfotable with me storing Gas in my garage otherwise. Can't
say as I blame her. Thanks for your help
BUT is safer to by a few good 5 gal cans
<plastic> from wallmart.
can see you now sucking on the hose getting a mouth full of 93 octane.
sure your wife doesn't have other plans?
the case, minus a few cans!
You won't be able to syphon gas from the E55, but if you take the
carpet off the back of the rear seats (from the inside of the boot)
you will see the fuel tank, you can remove the sender unit by turning
it approx 90 degrees and then you can just drop a hose into the tank
and syphon away....
Be careful when siphoning gas....the gas has additives that can be very
harmful....espcially if you use the world-famous Oklahoma Credit Card
(rubber hose with mouth suction to get gas flowing). Use a siphon hose that
has a bulb in the line that you squeeze to get gas moving.
