No Fuel Usage Issue

Post by KenR22 » Sat Mar 28, 2020 9:10 pm

So I've played FS19 on Xbox One since it released and have always (from day one) had an issue where my equipment uses no fuel. I have the settings set to where the equipment uses fuel quickly, but I have never, not a single time, had to refuel any of my equipment because despite leaving them on for hours, the fuel usage meter on them never goes off of full. Why is this happening? I know it's a blessing to not have to pay for fuel, but what I admire more is all the somewhat realistic features of the simulator; so I want my equipment to use fuel; I want to be able to refuel my machinery.

It's mad isn't it. Using seasons can run a tractor for years without ever needing to refuel. Funnier still is people making mods of various fuel browsers for refueling. Complete useless

You must play three day seasons or play in fast forward or something because I have played two seasons and put 4-5 tanks in the tractor I use most

I just put $140 of diesel in my Fendt 300, and $350 in my Claas Xerion on Geiselsberg with seasons, so I think it's not seasons that's the issue.

Are you using a lot of hired helpers? If so, is the setting for them to keep it filled up turned of?

Run us a list of mods you got. Maybe you're running a mod that's disabled fuel usage.

EDIT: On 6 day seasons, half a tank is gone and I'n not even midway through summer on year 1 with my medium tractor. I have zero mods installed that impact fuel in any way.

I have zero mods that would interfere with any fuel usage. I had downloaded and used a seasons mod and played a few seasons with it with no change. I deactivated the seasons mod and had no change in fuel usage. I rarely use helpers and when I do it's only so I can quickly drive to the store to get equipment and then I drive back and cancel my helpers. All of my settings are also fine; nothing that would interfere with fuel usage is on. Also, I have sped the time up on all of the settings to test your theories and my fuel usage still stays on full.

I was using the JD w330 harvester mod and it was requiring refueling every two and a half hours on default.not sure how it's files are set but it barely does my two med size fields before needing to be filled again.the maintenance on it is in line with the base game models.im on 3 day seasons.
