Fuel Gauge

When the ignition is on, the fuel gauge shows how much fuel is left in the tank.

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

The gauge will first indicate empty before the vehicle is out of fuel, but the vehicle's fuel tank should be filled soon.

When the fuel tank is low on fuel, the FUEL LEVEL LOW message will appear on the Driver Information Center (DIC). For more information see Fuel System Messages on page 5‑40.

Here are some situations that may occur with the fuel gauge. None of these indicate a problem with the fuel gauge.

• At the gas station, the fuel pump shuts off before the gauge reads full.

• It takes a little more or less fuel to fill up than the fuel gauge indicated. For example, the gauge may have indicated the tank was half full, but it actually took a little more or less than half the tank's capacity to fill the tank.

• The gauge goes back to empty when the ignition is turned off.
