Method not working
I'm not sure what I am missing here, I had this working, but I lost my progress and had to start over. Unfortunately, all I get is "bummer: Try again!"
class RaceCar: laps = 0 def __init__(self, color, fuel_remaining, **kwargs): self.color = color self.fuel_remaining = fuel_remaining for key, value in kwargs.items(): setattr(self, key, value) def run_lap(self, length): laps += 1 length = length * 0.125 return self.fuel_remaining - length

Hey Marcus De Silva, you are very close! The following needs fixing:
laps is an instance attribute, it is referenced using
self.fuel_remaining needs to be updated. Maybe try -= instead of -
no value needs to be returned from the method. So the
return can be removed
Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
