Error on getStringExtra

I am trying to get data from the intent, but my code doesn´t work. I get error on getStringExtra. What can be my mistake?

import android.os.Bundle;

public class FlightActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    public int fuelLevel = 0;

    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        // Add your code below!
         Intent intent = getIntent();
      String FUEL_LEVEL = intent.getStringExtra("-1");

Read in the document and try to use getIntExtra() for this case example: Intent intent = getIntent(); fuelLevel = intent.getIntExtra("FUEL_LEVEL",-1);
