Fuel Gage
When the ignition is on,
the fuel gage shows how
much fuel the vehicle
has remaining in the
fuel tank.
An arrow on the fuel gage indicates the side of the
vehicle the fuel door is on.
Here are four things that some owners ask about.
None of these indicate a problem with the vehicle?s
fuel gage:
? At the gas station, the gas pump shuts off before
the gage reads full.
? It takes a little more or less fuel to ?ll up than the
gage indicated. For example, the gage may have
indicated the tank was half full, but it actually took a
little more or less than half the tank?s capacity to
?ll the tank.
? The gage moves a little while turning a corner or
speeding up.
? The gage does not go back to empty when the
ignition is turned off.
When the fuel in the fuel tank is low, a LOW FUEL
message will display on the Driver Information
Center (DIC). See DIC Warnings and Messages on
page 3-38 for more information.
