What's wrong with my code? Thank you

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 = intent.getStringExtra("FUEL_LEVEL", -1);

There is no need to define another variable with String name as we already have the Member Variable, mFuelLevel, as what we are wanting to assign the value to with the intent. Also, we need to use the getIntExtra method and not the getStringExtra for this challenge.

Here is what you are looking to do in code:

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

Happy coding,
