Also please explain why this tank is only 51l as opposed to the previous 55l.
Is there a tank for the 350 Bluetec W463?

Can someone show a picture as fitted on vehicle - further
1. For what vehicles - diesel vehicles were available from 1979 - 2018 - does it cater for all?
2. Does it include pump?
3. Where are the fuel inlet, exit and vent holes ? Not apparent from pictures given

I have sold out of the 55L unfortunately I only have 7 left of the 51l and then they are discontinued.

Looks like the front bracket mount very different to W460. Also will not work with cars with auxillary original fuel tanks unfortunately

There are two types of 461 - ones with VG080 transfer box and others with the VG150 transfer box - chassis and mounts are different

Peter, it only fits the VG 150 type. The tank is between the propshaft and chassis which is restricted on the 460's.
As for Bluetec, I asked the questio re 51l as I suspect the tank is a bit smaller to accommodate the battery tray which in in ther rear passender footwell. This would also apply to the other G's where the battery is mounted in the rear floor. eg. G55.
