Method with Megan Amendola

hello, can someone explain me when i set gas consumption 35, why the method use_gas called second times, it produce You are run out of gas!???

Class Car():
    doors = 4
    wheel = 4
    engine = True

    def __init__(self, model, year, make = "Honda"):
        self.model = model
        self.year = year
        self.make = make
        self.gas = 100
        self.is_moving = False

    def stop(self):
        if self.is_moving:
            print("The Car has stopped")
            self.is_moving = False
            print("The car has already stop")

    def go(self, speed):
        if not self.is_moving:
            if not self.is_moving:
                print(f"The car is start")
                self.is_moving = True
            print(f"the car is going {speed} KMH")
            print("You are run out of gas!")

    def use_gas(self):
        self.gas -= 35
        if self.gas <= 0:
            return False
            return True

car_one = Car("Civic", 2022)

What stands out to me is that you have 3 calls to the go method of over 200 but you only start with enough gas for 100. That may be why you're seeing the car stopped when you're not expecting it to.

200, 250, and 300 are for speed, i set each call will consume 35
