How do I get the current fill level of a trailer in a LUA script?

The use-case is being able to animate certain things based on the fill level. I've looked through the API and I've found getAttachedTrailersFillLevelAndCapacity(), but I'm not quite sure how to access this?

I'm currently relying on updating the value in the Vehicle#update() method, how do I get the fill level from there?

please take a look at the Fillable.lua

Fillable adds the table
to the vehicle's table.

Every fillUnit can have a fillLevel and a fillType ...

To get the overall fillLevel you could do something like:

local fillLevel = 0;
for fillUnitIndex,fillUnit in pairs(self.fillUnits) do
fillLevel = fillLevel + self:getUnitFillLevel(fillUnitIndex);
renderText(0.5, 0.5, 0.02, string.format("overall fillLevel = %.2f", fillLevel));

But that's only for one vehicle ;)
