As Tobias mentioned, the variable is called grainTankFillLevel and not fillLevel.

So you should use:
renderText(0,0.65,0.05,self.grainTankFillLevel);

i tryed that but still getting "unexpected system exception occured"

Ups, there is another error ;)

You can only render strings with renderText, but self.grainTankFillLevel is a number. Thus you first need to convert that to a string.
You can use this code:
renderText(0,0.65,0.05, tostring(self.grainTankFillLevel));


Or you can use string.format to do some more advanced converting. For example limiting the number of decimal places.
