What is wrong with my code

I am not able to pass the racecar challenge

racecar.py
class RaceCar:

    def __init__(self,color,fuel_remaining,laps=0,**kwargs):
        self.color=color
        self.fuel_remaining=fuel_remaining
        self.laps=laps


        for key,value in kwargs.items():
            setattr(self,key,value)

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

Some hints:

  • the method to add is run_lap without the s
  • the indentation of def run_lap() should align with def __init__ so they are separate
  • you don't need to pass in laps as a argument for init
  • but you will need to set the instance of laps to 0 (task 2 or 3) in init

Thank you very much i got it
