FarmVille free fuel: Everything you need to know
In an update made on 03.04.10, FarmVille added more opportunities to gain free fuel. You can now gain free fuel by plowing or helping out on your neighbor's farms when fertilizing their crops. You may also find free fuel offered on your FarmVille neighbors Facebook newsfeed by sharing and also find it in Mystery Gifts or Mystery Eggs. Free Fuel is always nice, especially if you are using the gas-guzzlilng Hot Rods.
For more information on Free Fuel read here from Official FarmVille Forum Moderator Lexilicious:
"There are now new ways to find fuel for your vehicles! In addition to purchasing fuel and discovering it in Mystery Gifts or Eggs, you are now able to find fuel while plowing your Farm and when fertilizing a Neighbor's farm.
Plowing Your Own Farm – Sharing Fuel with Neighbors
When plowing on your own farm, you have a chance to find fuel once per day.
When you find fuel on your farm, you can share this fuel with your Neighbors by posting a feed to your wall. Up to 150 of your neighbors will be able to click this feed once to get fuel of their own.
After clicking the feed, they will be taken to a page that will inform them of how much fuel they have earned. The amount of fuel your Neighbor will receive from clicking on a feed is determined by how many plots they have on their farm. The more plots they have, the larger the amount of fuel they'll receive. This fuel is added directly to their overall tank.
When clicking on a Feed from a Neighbor, you may be told that you have too much fuel. In order to find more fuel, you'll need to use some of the fuel that you've gained to make room for more.
Fertilizing Your Neighbors' Farms – Earning Fuel for your own use
When fertilizing your Neighbors' farms, you have a chance to find fuel that you can use on your own farm.
When this fuel is found, it will appear as a fuel canister rising up from the ground (like the coin you see when plowing or seeding your land). Fuel that is found from Fertilizing is added directly to your overall fuel tank. The amount of fuel you receive is also determined by how many plots you have on your farm.
The more plots you have, the larger the amount of fuel you will receive. You can find fuel once for each neighbor's farm that you fertilize. However, at a certain point while fertilizing your neighbor's farms, you may notice that you are no longer finding fuel. In order to find more fuel, you'll need to use some of the fuel that you've gained to make room for more.
Whether you are collecting fuel from your neighbors' feeds or by fertilizing their farms, you will gain either one or two small tanks of fuel from each discovery.
In order to balance out the new ways that we've added to find fuel, we've slowed down the rate at which fuel naturally regenerates. All farms will be able to regenerate a full tank of fuel over time, but now this rate is determined by how many plots of land you have on your farm. The more plots you have on your farm, the quicker your fuel regenerates.
The quickest you'll be able to regenerate a full tank of fuel is 24 hours.
Note: If you have not yet purchased a Vehicle, you will still be able to collect fuel as long as you are level 12 and above."
