Ah, it one of those things you either think "wow how efficient of the
engineers to run everything with common systems" or "what kind of morons
would run everything with common systems" ;^)

Kind of like the old Bug's using the spare tire pressure to spray the
windshield washer fluid.  Great unless it is really raining and then you get
a flat...

Well, Chris it's like this.....

The early series 123 MB Diesel motor needs a vacuum pump to operate
fuel shut off, power door locks, climate control (300 Diesel) and
transmission control rod pressure. Pop the hood on a 123 series MB
Diesel and you'll see vacuum lines everywhere. Today's cars use
electrical switched devices.
