public class FlightActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    public int fuelLevel = 0;

    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        // Add your code below!
        Intent intent = getIntent();

There are get___Extra() methods for many variable types. If the fuel level is an int then perhaps getStringExtra() isn't the correct method to use. (Also you don't need the int declaration on the second argument, just -1 should suffice)

Posting like that on someone else's question probably probably wasn't the best way to ask for help. Post was deleted for profanity.
