Mercedes have a bad rep for low amp alternators. 70 amps in my 87 300e, not enough to run headlight, windshield wipers, AC, and high amp stereo at the same time on short trips. Really, worse than that. What I read was that many have switched to much higher amps in alternators, mostly from GM cars, up to 200 amps.

SOURCE: it feels like gas isn't
Have the fuel pressure checked- this would determine if your fuel pump is working properly. Its really easy if you have a gauge. you might be able to rent one at a part store. or it could need a new fuel filter

Check to see if you have a MPV that has been included in the recall for the PCV line. Yes it is difficault to get to on your own, however they have special tools to reach behind the manifold to remove the line and install a new one. If you do it on your own it is very difficaul and will take a few hours as a I did before I found out about the recall. The service dept. should have asked you about the recall when you went to get the part from them. Where I got pissed was when they did replace the hose the faulty line had fouled the pcv valve and they did not bother to replace it and that is tucked under the intake manifold and under the fuel rails.

Could be fuel or electrical related. Since you may not know the history, this may take a while.
Any amount of smoke from exhaust? White, Blue, Black?
Start with most obvious and inexpensive:
1. Fuel filer clogged (replace fuel filter).
2. Could be the ECM (Electronic Control Module). It controls the ignition spark timing.
A few other things... consider other expert solutions...

Hey I have the same problem...i changed all 8coils and spark plugs. But now when I start the car sometimes it stutter(shaking), but once I pass 3rd gear it drives fine, the engine light was blinking, then stayed on..but I disconnect the battery to clear it. Would the car shake if your low on fuel?
