Question: What's the purpose of having 2 low fuel indicator lights on the dashboard? .

The owners manual has 2 low fuel indicator lights on the dashboard. My problem is when I was parked on a steep incline with a 1/2 tank of gas, the top fuel indicator light came on. It been a week after filling up the indicator light has not went off. What could be the problem? The needle gauge works just fine. Please advise.

Thx. D.R.
