I cannot figure out this piece of code!

I am not sure what to add here!

import android.os.Bundle;

public class FlightActivity extends Activity {

  public int mFuelLevel = -1;

  protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    // Add your code below!
  Intent intent = getIntent();
        int mFuelLevel = intent.getStringExtra("FUEL_LEVEL") ;

You need to use the getIntExtra() method. This method also expects a default value, which will be -1 according to the instructions of the challenge. Also, mFuelLevel is already defined so don't redefine it.

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