My car has an automatic transmission.
Fuel sensing units were a common replacement item with your Mercedes Benz ML320 and that generation ML. In fact, most Benz' of that era have the same issue.
Here is something you can try:
This might reboot the sending unit. If that doesn't work, or it works temporarily, replacing the fuel sender/pump unit might be the only repair.
You can also check the fuel pump/sender electrical connector for looseness or corrosion. It is visible in the left rear (drivers side) wheel well. With the key OFF, try unplugging it, and checking for any corrosion in the connector.
