Fuel Status

Get remote access to the fuel level and the remaining vehicle range of Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

Develop your service application based on the actual fuel level

Our push API Fuel Status provides remote access to the fuel level and the remaining range of connected vehicles with an internal combustion engine. It enables the development of a variety of services:

  • Make predictions of upcoming stops at gas stations

  • Make individual offers to customers with low fuel level at the right time, such as coffee, snacks or a discount for the fuel price

  • Integrate fuel level and range information into smart home environments


For detailed technical information, specifications, sandbox environments and access options please visit our Mercedes-Benz /developers portal.

I think it's great that we're enabling smart services for all drivers, from electric vehicle drivers to internal combustion engine enthusiasts.
