Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
The 1994 and 1995 carry the same parts so you can purchase a 1995 and it will match up to your vehicle with no problems.

Hi, Thanks for your answer, In the UK in 1995 the panel van was superceeded by the new Sprinter, so the tanks on the 1995 models available from wreckers fit the sprinters and not the old Panel Vans (Which ceased late 94/early95) My van was actually built in Sept 1994 but not registered till Jan 1995. Hence the confusion when I contact the dealers. I have since been in contact with the Merecedes Dealers and they found a new tank for the RH Drive model which they are importing for me from Germany.(1 of 3 left in the World so I'm told!)
