    Hi Folks Wondering could you guys assist here? A full tank of fuel (100%) gives this result from the CAN bus. Do you know which message indicates the fuel here?
  2. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hi! I had 3 occasions where I had trouble filling her up, which was annoying. Could only get about .5 of a gallon in before the pump clicked off. I dropped home, popped the filler neck off, and it was pristine, looked almost new (It's not). I cleared all the hoses at the neck, made sure it...

  7. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    I bought a '04 Forester XT 4AT a couple months that wouldn't really idle. There was no check engine codes, if I remember right, at the time I got it.
