Mercedes C180 2005
The fuel isn't trasnferring from one tank to other, all pumps and sender
units (the basics) have been replaced.

When the fuel gauge hits just below half the car cuts out until fuel is

There is a switch betwen the two tanks ,it must be replaced by a new one,to let the fuel on the other tank pass into the fuel pump


Also check for a clogged vent this will also prevent the fuel from transferring...

Do you know the actual name for the switch ?
