    How many FuelGuage class objects does the code create?
    Should there only be one that all other classes share?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    This would be a great example of where to use the Singleton Design Pattern. If you know that your program is only ever going to need one instance of an object that's what you should do. Then any class can grab the instance from the class itself instead of having to pass it from one to another.
    Writing code is your job, helping you fix and understand it is mine.
