Fuel was a major part of life before the infection and still is after the infection. You will need fuel to transport yourself around the islands in vehicles and you will need lots of it to operate airplanes and helicopters! But fuel is in short supply so be economic and get ready to fight for it sometimes.

Fuel Tanks

You can find fuel lying around in various buildings in small jerry cans (20 liter capacity)

or large jerry cans (80 liter capacity)

. Sometimes you may find jerry cans that are empty

and you will need to fill them up. You can fill up empty jerry cans at fuel tanks or at fuel tanker train cars.

Approach the tank with an empty jerry can in your inventory and select 'Fill Jerrycan' from the action menu.

Crafting Large Jerrycans

There are also large jerry cans

with a capacity of 80 liters (4 times more) than the ordinary jerry can, which makes carrying fuel around easier. You can find them lying around in buildings or you can craft your own. To craft a large jerry can you will need:
  • 4x jerry can (either all 4 full or empty)

Open your gear and right-click any of the jerry cans that you want to use to craft a large one, then select 'Big Jerry Can (Empty)' or just 'Big Jerry Can' depending on if you are using full or empty jerry cans. Your player will craft a large jerry can, the 4 normal ones and the old rope will disappear from your inventory and a big jerry can will be put in their place.

Note
You will not lose the fuel in your jerry cans if you are crafting a large jerry can from 4 full normal jerry cans.

After draining the fuel a message will appear on your screen telling you how much fuel has been drained from the vehicle. Keep in mind that if a vehicle has more fuel than your jerrycan can hold, the rest of the fuel will remain in the vehicle and you can still drain the rest of the fuel from it in to other jerry cans.

Transporting Fuel

Jerry cans are practical for filling up motorcycles and cars, but helicopters and airplanes need hundreds of liters in their fuel tanks to get somewhere and although you can fill them up with ordinary jerry cans the most practical way to refuel them is using a fuel truck - The Rodina, which has two barrels that you can fill up and transport up to 620 liters of fuel at a time.

You can fill the Rodina fuel truck up directly from fuel tanks and then use it to directly refuel other vehicles, such as aircraft which will save you a lot of time and hassle.

Filling Up The Rodina

To refuel vehicles with the Rodina you will first need to find one and repair it to a drivable state. Click here to learn about repairing vehicles.

Then you will need to fill it up with fuel. To do this you will need to have the following items in your tool belt and also find a fuel tank:

1x Fuel Hose

Then you will need to attach the fuel hose to the Rodina. Approach it and select 'Attach Hose' from the action menu.

After that approach the fuel tank and select 'Fill Refuel Truck' from the action menu (Make sure you didn't park the Rodina too far from the tank). You will begin filling the Rodina up.

A message will be displayed every few seconds telling you how much percent the tanks are full. The Rodina can hold a maximum of 620 liters of fuel. To stop just drive away. In this example they are 100% full.

Refueling Vehicles Using The Rodina

To refuel other vehicles using the Rodina you need to attach the fuel hose to it just like when you fill it up. Then you need to park close to the vehicle you want to refuel, approach the vehicle and select 'Refuel using hose' from the action menu.

Note
When using the fuel hose there is a small probability that it may break and you will have to find a new one.


Refueling The Rodina Using Itself

You can also refuel the Rodina using the fuel it is transporting in the barrels. Attach the hose and select 'Refuel using hose' from the action menu and it will be refuel from the barrels.
