    I own a merc b class w246 180 diesel automatic.
    2016 reg.
    I have a problem with the stop start because of low battery.
    Can I fit a higher AH battery and will the alternator be able to charge it.
    Perhaps a 80 AH battery might solve the problem.

    You can fit larger battery if there is enough space. For alternator it doesn’t matter. But I think it will not solve your problem. Please remember that there are two batteries in your car – starter battery and auxiliary battery. You should check both of them and charging voltage at battery. You can also measure the car-off current draw.
