have i set the 'laps' to 0 correctly?

I am not sure if i have set 'laps' correctly .

class RaceCar:
    def __init__(self, color , fuel_remaining, **kwargs):
        self.color  = color 
        self.fuel_remaining = fuel_remaining
        for key, value in kwargs.items():

    def run_lap(self, length, laps = 0):
        self._fuel_remaining = length*0.125
        self.laps += 1

Hi Sabine, you're pretty close with this - you need to assign self.laps to 0 in the init.

Also there is an unnecessary underscore before fuel_remaining in the run_lap function.

Also it is asking you to reduce fuel remaining by length * 0.125, whereas you are assigning fuel_remaining to that value.

code tests are quite finicky on tabs and spaces ..
