Object Oriented Programming racecar.py challenge part2

I have first checked all the other answers on this topic, I am still coming up with an error, but I cannot figure out why. Please help.

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):
        self.laps += 1
        self.fuel_remaining  = self.fuel_remaining - (length * 0.125)

It looks like the 2nd "def" line is indented a different amount from the first one, but they should be in line vertically. Python is very particular about indentation!

Thank you so much! I was going crazy. I realize now that there are red dots that show up where there is an incorrect indentation. What a relief.
