    Search car-part.com for a 1995 E300 diesel, which also has a 90L tank that is interchangable with the 500E. Currently 3 show in CA... Rancho Cordova, San Bernardino, and Fontana. Only one has a price ($150).

    A new tank is p/n 124-470-95-01 but may be NLA, as no results show at MB Classic. You'd have to call a dealer and ask. MSRP $1150.

    If you need the tank because yours is cracked, make sure to fix the venting system problem before installing a replacement tank, you'll end up needing another one...

    Assuming you have had 2 tanks collapse inward, something isn't right with the venting system. Normally there should be a small amount of pressure in the tank, not vacuum. I'd start by at least replacing the vent valve at the bottom of the tank, under the car, assuming it is original. P/N is 124-476-04-32, $29 MSRP for OE/Genuine is cheap insurance. Photo attached. This isn't guaranteed to fix your problem, but it's somewhere to start.

    Otherwise, you'll need to trace out the vent lines which run from the tank to the front fender, and make sure nothing is plugged or otherwise not working correctly. I don't know if the purge valve not working properly could cause vacuum in the tank, but that's something else to look at... the valve is located directly below the EZL on the driver wheelhousing.
