    anybody know how air gets into the fuel tank, as the fuel cap is unvented ,so when the fuel is used up you end up with a vacuum in the tank.
    i asume there is a valve somewhere that must be blocked on mine making fuel delivery difficult
    has anyone seen this valve, or can shed any light on this as i am having probs. with fuel delivery

    A brief web search suggests there is a composite valve including a vent unit on the top of the tank. Access requires that the tank is 'dropped' away from the chassis. I suggest a call to your local MB commercial dealer might confirm this.
