Hi, I have a C180 2.0 2001 and of late have been having this very peculiar problem of engine cutting off if the fuel tank is half or less! If I keep the fuel gauge above half, it keeps running as normal.

Had it checked from a merc expert who diagnosed that there is some sort of fuel pump or lifter pump that picks the petrol from one tank, to the other tank (supposedly there are 2 tanks!) and this pump seems to have failed! I didnt think this was a correct diagnosis.

Has anyone else had this problem?

There are two sides to the tank with two senders,it maybe just the pipe has become loose from one side.
