Arrow Tools and Fuel


This thread is for reporting problems concerning any of the tools or fuel. Please read the following information BEFORE posting in this thread. Thank you!

Check Out The Game Guide:

Chapter 20: Fuel Everything you need to know about fuel is included here.

Chapter 21: Tools Everything you need to know about tools is included here.



It is now possible to have more than 4 Billion fuel.
As of May 2020 you can now top up your fuel, it no longer gets replaced when you refuel.



Important Things To Remember About The Tools You Own:
  1. Any of the Farm Cash tools for harvesting (crops, trees, flowers), plowing, chopping, fishing can be used to work on other peoples farms, including the 3x3 coin tools. These tools MUST be in storage for this to work. The bigger tools will use fuel.

  2. Once your tools are in your Item Storage, you can use them via your Yellow Toolbox, there isn't any need to take them out of storage.

  3. Farm Cash tools do NOT use up any of your Item capacity space.


Important Things To Remember About Fuel

You only will be able to refuel once per day. You will be able to refuel again after midnight Eastern time.

If you have already refuelled that day and you want to know when you can next refuel, click on the fuel station icon again and if you have to wait, there will be a time showing at the bottom of the pop-up. For example it could say "You will be able to refuel in 5 hours and twenty minutes"


If it seems you are using fuel quicker than expected. You could be using more fuel due to some of these:
  • Using the Start All at the top of the Facility Manager uses Fuel (turbo tools)
  • Using the Store All at the top of the Facility Manager uses Fuel (Forklifts)
  • Cashing out uses Fuel (Armored Truck, Farm Cash Item not the decoration) Unless your Harvests & Products is getting full or you need the coins, you do not need to cash out every day. Remember you can zip your Harvests & Products storage to help if your capacity limit is getting full.
  • The more facilities you have, using the start All tools and refilling them more often will use more fuel.

  • Dispatching Trains and Ships uses fuel. The more containers on them, the more you use.

  • Working for other farmers, the bigger the farms, the more on them, the more fuel you will need if you are using your own fuel to work those.

  • Working your own farms. The more you put on your farms and also when you expand them and add more items on them that require fuel to work them, will use more fuel than you were before.
    Farming and Planting more often - perhaps on days where more work is ready to do than there is on another day or on days when you require the short timed crops so will be planting more often.

  • Fuel is sold in the Gas Station service facility. It does NOT give you more fuel tanks. If you are low on fuel, do not load it into that facility. If you own the load tool for that facility, you open the facility and remove the check mark on the Fuel Tanks so it's not loaded into it to be sold.

Hi! fuel is used in lot of tools, you can read more about this in the following thread from the Official Game Guide

http://r1.slashkey.com/forum/showthread.php?t=338882

Also, if you have the Gas Station which is a service facility, it is loaded with fuel tanks so you are selling them and perhaps you dont have enough tanks when you need to refuel. If you have the tool to load that service facility, uncheck the fuel tanks from it or if you load the Gas Station without tools, dont load the fuel tanks.

Default problems purchasing this is my 3rd time to ask for help

I am having problems in purchasing tool. I had purchased all the tools up to the silver harvest sow plow, I sold the ones I did not need not knowing that you would add more tools and selling the ones we don't need would complicate the issue. I purchase the next green harvest plow sow trying to get back up to silver and brown. the game shows the action but does not load the tool or deduct the cash. This is my third time to contact for help since Thanksgiving and I have not even received even a reply. From Slashkey.
and getting er by the day.

Do you have the green plow, harvester, seeder, and harvest/plow combine?
When you try to purchase does it show green under it when you try to set it down on the farm or does it show red? If it is red then you are not in a clear spot to set it down. It has to be green under it.
You need to contact Support as we don't have any way to check your data to see what is going on. To contact them click on the link below, fill out the form and submit it. Be patient as it can take anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks for them to respond depending on how many tickets they have ahead of yours.

Default Accessing hiring farmers' equipment

I hired farmers to HP for me. I made sure the box was checked allowing them to access my equipment. However, they reported that they couldn't access my tools. Is there a step I or they are missing?

Default Using employers' tools

I was hired to harvest/plow and before finishing, got a pop up message'employer has no money left'. I couldn't finish and lost my bonus. Did this mean the employer had chosen to let me use his tools and had no fuel. I have all big tools and plenty of fuel, so why couldn't I use my own if indeed the message did imply I could use his. Thanks

Maybe a step they are missing. If you have the combine for that then it should show for them in place of the Gift Box. They would not need to go into the extended tool box for it. They do have to have fuel too though because they use their own fuel.
