Refueling your car is an essential part of driving in Fortnite, because, if you let your gas tank run dry, then you won't be able to go anywhere.
So, remember, even when you find the perfect car, you're going to want to fill it with fuel!

How to refuel a car in Fortnite
When you first find a car in Fortnite it should, as long as it hasn't been driven dry by another player, have a small amount of fuel in its tank.
To find out exactly how much fuel is in the vehicle you're planning to commandeer, stand next to it and, beneath prompt to drive it, you'll see the amount of fuel left.
There's no guarantee how much fuel this will be - it could be 18%, it could be 32%, it could be something else - but what we can guarantee is that you will most likely want more fuel in your vehicle.
There are two ways to refuel your car in Fortnite:
- Gas stations
- Gas cans
Gas stations can be found across the Fortnite map and you can learn more about them in the section below.
Gas cans are items that you can pick up and hold in your inventory like weapons or shield potions.
You'll be able to find gas cans across the map, but these items are more likely to appear near gas stations or areas containing a car or two.
Each individual gas can consumes one slot in your inventory and contains 100 allotments of fuel that can be used on the vehicle of your choice. Once the gas can is empty, you can throw it away.
Fortnite Season 4 has arrived and its brought the Marvel universe with it, including Thor, Groot, Storm, Mystique and Iron Man. Theres also a new Victory Umbrella to earn, new map locations and a special Wolverine skin to unlock, with the challenges being investigating claw marks, finding the Loading Screen picture at a Quinject Patrol Site, Wolverine's Trophy and launching off the Sentinel Hands. Make sure you know how to drive a car and use the gas stations too! Don't forget to raid a Quinjet landing spot or The Collection location! Finally, there are new challenges for you to complete, including driving boats beneath the coloured bridges and visiting Panther's Prowl.
Gas station locations in Fortnite
The easiest way to fill up the gas tank of your car in Fortnite is to visit a gas station.
These buildings are dotted across the Fortnite map - some in remote areas and others in popular loot hunting places. The one you visit may be determined simply by being closest to you or, if you're trying to avoid other players, you might take the risk and travel across the map to a more solitude spot.
Here are the locations of the various gas stations in Fortnite:
Once you've reached a gas station, you can refill your gas tank by parking the car near one of the fuel pumps.
After that you need to leave the car and interact with the nearest fuel pump. This will cause your avatar to take hold of the fuel pump, which you can direct towards the car and use the pump as you would a weapon.
The car will then begin to fill with gas, until you've managed to fill the gas tank.
Now all you have to do is return the pump to the stand, jump in your car and drive off.
Just keep an eye out for other players when visiting a gas station, because, considering these stations are the best place to refuel a car, then you could also stage a good ambush there too!
Good luck on your driving adventures in Fortnite!
