Tank Up Responsibly With Your Mercedes!

Tank Up Responsibly With Your Mercedes!

A customer from Brentwood came into the workshop complaining of an odd banging that they could hear when driving their Mercedes.IMG_0665

Unfortunately, fuel tanks can become heavily rusted or even contaminated. They can be cleaned but it is a mammoth task that only the very brave are willing to do! At Phoenix Motor Centre, we pride ourselves on our efficiency and ability to repair everything, receiving constant positive reviews, but we looked at this and realised it really needed to be replaced.


Just a little background info: Mercedes fuel tanks alone come in a vast range of shapes and sizes, depending on the vehicle it belongs to. Larger and wider tanks allow for a much better fuel capacity, where narrower or smaller ones are best for aerodynamic improvement.

So in order to repair the problem, we had to remove the original rattling tank and replace it with a brand spanking new one. But first, we had to get the fuel tank out… no easy task! The car looked as if it had been taken to pieces; literally! The pictures featured are our own handy work, having taken the fuel tank out and replaced it.
