Sorry if this has been bought up before, i cant seem to find any other topic on it. I know it's been mentioned here before in the past, but what do you guys think now? Will we have to fill up with petrol every now and then? I hope so, it'd certainly add a great sense of realism for myself.

Ive never seen the point in this idea really.
If you ran out of fuel, you just jack another car, so what would the point be?

Yeah, there's nothing better than wasting 10 minutes of your life in a service station in real life. I can't imagine how great that would be in a game!

The only way the fuel in my cars run out in GTA games is through the rapid combustion of an explosion.

I'd prefer not to but if implemented it would need to be refined so that running out of fuel would be a rare event and so it doesn't become a major gameplay hindrance.

Right, if you run out of gas, all you have to do is hop out, and steal another car.

I agree with Freak that it should be a rare event.

I also think there should be the option to pay or not to pay. If you don't pay, and you get spotted, you become wanted.

Could you imagine being half-way through a mission, especially a timed one, then your car decides to stop working. Fun?

Well usually timed missions give you a spawned car to do it in and if the game made sure it was one with a full tank or one that has enough fuel to do the mission then that wouldn't be a problem. Worked out I think it could work and become a novelty thing.

I think thah would be really great idea... I was missing this in previus GTA's ... I can imagine an item in menu which sais "Fuel :Manual(Need to refull)/Unlimited(As in previous GTA's)"

I can understand that somebody may see it annoing to going on gas station to take gas but i'd love it smile.gif Really hope that they would implement it.

Well, with the realism kick this isn't going to happen, but I always thought that GTA cars should run on money. So any time you drive, you lose money. If you run out of money completely the engine will stall. First of all, it would be great satire, and GTA games used to jump on that a lot. Second, this would be slightly more realistic than unlimited fuel, without annoyance of having to actually drive to gas stations and wasting time fueling up. And finally, this would give players an incentive to drive high-millage cars, rather than gas guzzling sports cars.

If your going to be doing a mission or something, then simply fill up before you begin.. just like you go to a petrol station in real life before you go on a long journey. I guess raw gta fans will prefer that this wont be implemented, but those of us looking the next level of GTA will be. Who said anything about queing up to get petrol? Splash 'N' Dash!!!

I love driving in the GTA series, and i'd like for the cars to be able to have a more realistic feel to them.

LMAO. Imagine when you first start playing the game. Empty wallet. What do you do? Beat up peds and take their money. You score about $50 and that gets you a few miles in the SUV you just jacked. Out of gas. Beat up more peds and jack an economy car this time.

Incentive: kill peds with economy vehicles! Population control and environmental friendliness all in one.


Seriously, I wouldn't mind having to refuel so long as it was balanced towards gameplay more than realism, such as, no car would get less than 50 miles a gallon.

Who told that you'll need to spend time to fuel up ? Hm? My opinion is that it would be something like those mission spots... You go in, wait for one sec until Words "You are full it's 15 bucks please" appear and you shoulld leave.. something like Pay'n'Spray

If i had to re-fuel it would be such a bore.
Besides, still include gas stations, so you can blow them up.

If the game wasn't about being a criminal then sure, I'm all for the feature. But when you can just steal another car, it'd be a bit pointless. Granted, some chases might get really interesting when you're not sure whether you have enough gas to reach a hideout or something, but the downside is, just think how many times you would run out of gas in the middle of nowhere and have to walk to the nearest road. Hmmm... now that there are no deserts (or rural areas of any kind), maybe that wouldn't be such a problem. Well, either way, I don't care.

BTW, this has been discussed countless times already.

It really deepends on how harsh the cops are gonna be i guess. Sure you can hop round stealiing numerous cars when you run out of gas..but how easy is it going to be? Maybe if you've got another objective your doing e.g drug dealing.. then maybe it'd be easier for you to fill up with your car, rather than jacking the nearest car and going on a high speed pursuit with the cops.

No one would drive a car so much time to be out of fuel... The car would be pwned until you do that...

I think it would be awesome to have to put gas in your car.

If you get a two star [or more] wanted level for running away without paying then I'd rather not.
If it's a one star wanted level then I wouldn't mind.

I think using gas is interesting. and different cars use the gas faster than others. it should definently be quick like a paint and spray. this is alil of topic but you should be able to buy cars too, so they let you know the top speed, gas millige, etc. everybody knows gas is a real issue in n.y. why not it GTAn.y. rahkstar2.gif

NO! Don't tell me anyone enjoyed going to the gym or eating in SA. They were useless time and money sinks and were just a pain in the arse. How about adding 1 shot deaths aswell if you want realism? This would be the same - say no to useless fkin irritating features.

I was all for getting a star for minor traffic violations, so I'll have to say, I like this. But I've been playing Grand Theft Auto since Grand Theft Auto III, and Rockstar hasn't implemented it yet. So to those of you that don't like the idea, relax.

I can see how fuel might hinder some missions. But wouldn't that also increase the replay value of Grand Theft Auto IV? If anything, they could make it so no vehicle has less than a certain, set amount. That way, it would only become an issue if you got into one of those drawn-out, high-speed chases; or until you just drove around the map so much, that you run out of fuel.

Either way, I'm all for the added realism. As someone said, maybe it could be an option. Anyways, that's my two cents. icon14.gif
