    Yes, I have 1,248 right now. I thought everyone was like that at this point. I am ready to start selling it on the side, maybe Shell Oil would like to Promo a gas station for the farm then when farmers come to do their daily 5 one can be to get some fuel...:D

    You my friend are nuts. I can not get enough fuel, i have never been over 113 gallons of fuel, I know a couple of people thats been over 500, but when you do a short crop, you burn at least 30 gallons a day, you mite not of been here when you had to harvest 15,000 strawberrys or 22,000 rasberrys, or when wheat was a 3 day crop, blackberrys, was another large crop, we did all these high numbered crops, and then 2 weeks later they lowered the numbers, what i produce in my winery i use up in the same day, I CANT KEEP UP WITH FUEL.

    Sure it is easy to get fuel from the crafting cottages but some people don't have a lot of neighbors, some people don't have a lot of neighbors with higher level goods (level 5 stuff doesn't give out a whole lot of fuel), some people don't have the money to spend on goods because they are trying to save up for something big. Sure, you can stalk the feed for goods/shared fuel, but it's not abundant for everyone.

    I do agree that it's easier to get now than it was before, but that doesn't mean it's always plentiful.

    I would be in favor of having different choices - the way you do when your friends have picked up your bushels - but I think I would cry if I could no longer trade in goods for fuel.

    I am trying to save for a combine, so I am not drowning in fuel as I haven't bought any for a while. I'm about to run out.

    It used to be a lot harder to get, I like I can get it easier now, and for coins. My neighbours always have something to sell that I can use.

    Oh PLEASE teach me how to be drowning in fuel.. :D

    My issue is, like right now.. I have TWELVE fuel - and I'm trying to collect them from my feed and I get:

    "Howdy Farmer! You need to use some of your fuel to be eligible to find more. So get busy farming and come back later!" :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:


    TWELVE FUEL and I get blocked from getting more?!?! :confused:

    PLEASE oh please help me to see what I'm doing wrong, my big, crop dense farm requires a LOT of fuel to use the combine and I'd love to be able to have more than a puny 12 units.

    Thank you

    Like I said earlier. Buy stuff from your neighbours' crafting cottages and then swap for fuel. You will get your fuel and your neighbours will get a little bit closer to next mastery star on that item. Good for all.

    I have friends that only could sow one crop in 24 hours due to lack of fuel (and laziness, of cause lol). Today they have 500+ units with 2-3 4 hour crops and a 12 hour crop. This new system is obviously great - but even they have more fuel than they can use now.

    I really like the idea that we could swap something like 1000 units for some animal that we can only get this way!! :D

    LOL, I actually stopped playing several months ago because I was spending more on FV fuel than I do fuel for my car . . .but was lured back . . .and since I've been back (about a week now), I've completed a job and mastered a crop . . . .and have 100 more fuels now than when I started last week :D I think I'd prefer to choose between coins, fuel or XP . . .rather than just fuel . . .'cause yeah, right now, I'm drowning in the stuff :D

    For the longest time, people have been wanting to buy fuel with coins. Now you can :) Go shopping in your neighbor's crafting shed . . .redeem those items for tons of fuel. When you hover over an item, it will reveal how many plots of ground it will cover. It's a great deal. I've been a farming fool this past week and have 100 more fuels than when I started :) Don't forget to collect those craft goods in your feed to redeem for fuel as well :)

    I sure wouldn't want to complain about there being too much fuel. I think it's pretty great that they've worked out so many different ways to add to our fuel tanks without forcing us to pay cash, so I can only say, I'm grateful for that. It sure helps with the carpal tunnel, to have plenty of fuel and that fantastic combine. :)

    Yess Pam Breeze: I was going to list the fact that i could open up a refinery and probably have more than Exxon! Just kidding of course! I had over 80 gallons in a my gift box area way back in December and have received even more because i don't use that much. The Farmhands, and other item is fine but no more fuel for awhile! I'm just starting to open up more land but more fuel is also adding up!

    LOL. I noticed this as well ( the age of the thread....). But it bears reminding people of the problems we had back when ! I of course increase fuel weekly vs use it...very steadily. And I buy to help someone level up their new crafting goods (two folks) plus one high good ( since she only has a few for sale) in each farm.... so I don't buy much anymore. I get enough from regular crafting of my own stuff.

    Fuel, or the lack thereof, is a timeless subject to be sure! It just boggles my mind that anyone (and it's usually a newbie) would search back that much instead of just starting a new topic, or, using a more recent thread.

    That being said, I have been feverishly collecting fuel since I started playing and I have now amassed enough to cover 5.25 million plots. I too collect more than I use now so I can't imagine ever running out.

    In a word, no. I'm not drowning in fuel. The only things I've more than I need are water and coin.

    Thank you MW - because someone posted today it was on the 1st page and I hadn't even realised the year.

    I think I'm greedy as I have just over 9,000 tanks of fuel and I still plant my super seeds daily to amass more fuel. At times I have gone way beyond my 200 goods crafting limit - at one stage I had over 700 goods - you can't buy over 200 but you can still continue to make goods and these continue to add. Don't know at what point you will get a whoa farmer but I realise that now that I mention it here Zynga will do something about it so perhaps I'm shooting myself, and others, in the foot.

    I'm way beyond my crafting goods. On the used goods it's up to 2500 but I have had it higher but for some reason it stop adding to the use goods.

    For some reason, I am not able to harvest 100% of my crafting goods for fuel because the counter would stop counting after 3 or 4 harvests. To re-activate the counter again, I have to use some goods.

    My fuel counter is at 9886 and I rarely plant anymore unless necessary. I do not plant crops for the sake of planting and I avoid quests like the plague.

    I seem more determined to keep raising my fuel counter and conserving it.
