Today the engine suddenly stopped. I tried to start the engine a couple of times but it was totally dead. After a while I could suddenly smell Gasoline. I looked in the engine room and could see that the fuel line had fallen of right where it enters the engine. The blue plastic clip seemed to be mounted wrongly. I installed the fuel line and started the engine. The fuel gauge was blinking and the text Fill Fuel was on. I filled some gasoline but the fuel gauge is still indicating zero level and the warning to fill fuel is on. Does something need to be reset or is there a problem with the fuel gauge.

The blue plastic clip seems to be a cheap solution for a fuel line. Everybody knows that plastic deteriorate in hot conditions over time. Luckily my car was not so warm yet, had only been driving for 1 km. ( but anyway mine was not bad, but wrongly mounted by the dealer mechanic. )

I believe the North American clip is metal.

Good its metal in the US.
You are right it can be humid and sometimes also hot here. Especially in April. Have been here for some years so somewhat used to it.
