Where is the fuel gauge located?

It’s important that you know how much gas is in your car at all times. The fuel gauge gives you a pretty accurate estimate. However, understand that it is not 100% accurate (no fuel gauge displays anything but the approximate amount of gas). The needle moves from F at the top to E at the bottom as you use gasoline. A Low Fuel light will turn on in your dash when the needle gets close to the E mark.

Tips

  • You’ll notice the needle move up and down based on the orientation of the car (up or downhill, for instance).

  • The fuel gauge shows E when the ignition switch is off.
