Where to Find Fuel in Days Gone

Days Gone takes place over a sprawling map with buildings to loot and cars to salvage. You’ll need to constantly be on the lookout for fuel while out on the road, as you’ll run out very quickly indeed while motoring around. Fuel is found in red cans, and must be transported and then transferred into your bike’s fuel. Here are all of the places you can find fuel in Days Gone:

  • Tow Trucks
  • Gas Pumps at gas stations
  • In the vicinity of NERO Checkpoints
  • Out near areas with a high concentration of buildings.

Best Place to Get Fuel

The absolute best way to get Fuel while out exploring in Days Gone is to find tow trucks along the main road. They are pretty much guaranteed to have red fuel cans in the back of them, and they’re very easy to find.

How to Refuel at Gas Stations

One aspect of Days Gone that is not made very clear from the outset is that you can fill up your bike’s fuel tank. Just look out for Fuel icons on your map, drive up and press Circle. This will completely fill up your Fuel tank while out and about.
