Auto check system

Brandon, it is 42, not 49.  No, I haven't heard
of this one before.  Does the owners manual shed
any light?  Of course the critical test is whether
the ECU is throwing any codes.  That "OK" is very
reassuring and even theraputic.  Maybe it is just
trying to annoy you, like a Vogon reading poetry
until it kills you.
My '00S4 lit up a gas pump icon leaving the house this

morning.  But it only took 13.2 gals at the filling
station.  The tank level sensor is a common failure
item on these cars, too bad mine waited to screw up
until after the warranty expired.
Good Luck,
