Building Interactive story

Cannot manage to fix the code

import android.os.Bundle;

public class FlightActivity extends Activity {

  public int mFuelLevel = 0;

  protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    // Add your code below!
    Intent intent = getIntent();
    String name = getIntExtra(getString(R.String.FUEL_LEVEL));

First you need to declare an intent variable, as you have done:

    Intent intent = getIntent();

You then need to use that variable to access the info passed over the intent when the activity was started. You assign the value of that into the variable, mFuelLevel, that is provided for you.

    mFuelLevel = intent.getIntExtra("FUEL_LEVEL", -1);

I hope that helps.
