Fuel Gage

The fuel gage shows about how much fuel is in the tank.

The fuel gage shows about how much fuel is in the tank.

An arrow on the fuel gage indicates the side of the vehicle the fuel door is on.

The gage works only when the ignition is on. When the indicator moves to the edge of the low fuel warning band, the low fuel warning light comes on and a chime sounds. The vehicle still has a little fuel left, but the vehicles fuel tank should be filled soon.

Here are some things that some owners ask about.

None of these show a problem with the fuel gage:

• At the service station, the gas pump shuts off before the gage reads full.

• It takes more (or less) fuel to fill up than the gage indicated. For example, the gage may have indicated half full, but it took more (or less) than half the tank’s capacity to fill it.

• The gage moves up a little while turning a corner, speeding up or making a hard stop.

• The gage does not go back to empty when the ignition is turned off.
