Since I never know how much gas I really have, I reset the odometer to 0, fill the tank and fill up every 200 miles. I took it to the dealership and was told it was something with the fuel sensor. So many owners have had this issue, it's irresponsible of Hyundai to not repair the faulty parts given so many complaints. I'm very concerned because of the distance I have to travel to work.

A pain, but it was working.
