Unlike the precious entry in the series, cars in State of Decay 2 actually require fuel to run. No longer can you magically make ten different runs with a vehicle on the very same tank of gas, and that adds another layer of challenge to the gameplay.
Fuel is a valuable resource in State of Decay 2, and it is generally considered a very good idea in this game to always carry some Gas Cans with you in your vehicle’s inventory. These can be found in a number of places such as Sheds, Garages and regular Houses scattered around the map, but players are most likely to find them in Gas Stations.
There are a number of Stations around the map, and they should always be a priority for players whenever they head out on scavenging runs. You do not want to find yourself in a situation with a car loaded with supplies and no fuel to run it.
To refuel, simply walk towards the rear left side of a vehicle with a Gas Can in your inventory and either hold E on the PC or Y on the Xbox One controller.
It will take a few seconds for the refueling to occur, so do it while there are no zombies around.
State of Decay 2 is available now on the Xbox One and the PC.
