The fuel gauge is located on your instrument control panel, and lets you know how much gas is left in the fuel tank. On one end of the gauge is an F, which stands for full. On the other side of the gauge is an E, which stands for empty. Where the fuel gauge needle points between the F and the E represents how much gas is in the tank.
