A method for operating a vehicle is provided. The method includes, in one example during a first a rate of change of an inclination of the vehicle, adjusting a fuel level indication based on the inclination and a level of fuel within the fuel tank; and during a second rate of change of the inclination different from the first rate of change, adjusting the fuel level indication based on actual fuel consumption of the engine. In this way, it is possible to provide an accurate fuel level indication based on the inclination when the inclination is not changi...
1. A method for operating a vehicle including an engine, comprising: during a first rate of change of an inclination of the vehicle, adjusting a displayed fuel level indication based on the inclination and a level of fuel within a fuel tank; andduring a second rate of change of the inclination different from the first rate of change, adjusting the displayed fuel level indication based on actual fuel consumption of the engine. 2. The method of claim 1, wherein the fuel level indication is adjusted based on the inclination and the level of fuel within the ...
