You're super close! You have the first parameter correct, "FUEL_LEVEL" but you are missing the second parameter. The second parameter is the 'defaultValue'.

Code Skeleton: fuelLevel = intent.getIntExtra("FUEL_LEVEL", ___);

What is the 'defaultValue'?

Enter the default value after "FUEL_LEVEL" and you pass!

I would love if you selected this for best answer!
