Since you are retrieving and a value, and it is an int, you need to use getIntExtra().

The challenge is asking you to retrieve intent data from the last activity. In your code, you are trying to add another piece of data to the intent variable. Instead, try using the 'getIntExtra()' method to retrieve int data stored in the intent from the previous activity and assign it to the mFuelLevel variable.

Treehouse has kindly linked the relevant documentation in the challenge so for your own benefit take your time and read what the method does.
