Vehicles are a new thing in Dying Light: The Following, and these buggies are expert zombie killing machines. The only downsides to driving around the massive countryside is you’re going to need to keep your parts repaired, as well as maintain a decent fuel level in the buggy if you want to be able to outrun those zombie hordes. This guide will teach you everything you need to know about keeping your buggy on the road.
First things first, let’s tackle fuel. This is the most basic commodity you’re going to need to keep your buggy up and running. Even if the buggy’s parts get obliterated, you’ll still be able to drive around, albeit not very well, with a tank full of premium Haran fuel. The easiest places to find fuel are gas stations. There are several of these premium oil stations scattered around the countryside, but sometimes you might not be able to make it to one of them in time.
The most plentiful way to gain fuel is to siphon it from abandoned vehicles along the road. This can be done by approaching the vehicle’s fuel tank and holding down the Search button. You’ll get one unit of fuel for each search, and even if the tank is full on your buggy, you’ll still be able to hold on to any extra fuel you find lying around.
The second most important aspect of taking care of your vehicle is maintenance and new parts. To find repair parts you’ll want to search everywhere, including under the hood of each and every abandoned car you come across. You can find all kinds of useful items here like Lubrication, Screws, and even Steel Tubing.
Now, if you want to supe up your ride and really get the engine revving, you’re going to have to be willing to look a little deeper. Head up to the Silas truck Safe Zone, which you find during your first quest for Bilal. Here you can purchase upgraded parts like Brakes, Turbo, Suspension, Engine, and Traction. Just remember that all these higher upgraded parts also have an amount of times that they can be repaired, so you’ll want to minimize the amount of zombie ramming you do until you get your roll cage upgraded.
