Questions about Mission Car

I just started playing a few days ago. When my mission car was level 1, I was getting a gas can every 5 minutes, which made it possible for me to play almost nonstop. After I updated to level 2, I started getting a gas can every ten minutes. I mean you are literally getting 6 cans per hour instead of 12. Even though it holds 2 more cans, the disadvantage of only getting a can every ten minutes far outweighs the benefit of holding a few more cans. I find that I'm having to stop playing and wait so much that I'm losing interest in the game already. I was wondering if it is necessary to update the mission car. If not, I might restart the game and just never update it. Also, when you get to level 3, does the time required to get a can go up again or does it eventually go down again? I appreciate any comments or tips regarding this topic. Thank you.

    You probably started playing during a weekend event called "5 minute gas". It only lasts about 4 days each time. There are many different types of events available and there is even one called "1 minute gas" where you get a gas every 1 minute.

    Upgrading your Mission Car building does not slow down the speed at which you gain gas and only increase the upper limit before you stop accumulate gas via the passage of time. Gas gained via crates and bundles is not limited by this.

    It gets better the more you play and has improved a lot recently. The tradeshop gives you 8 extra gas every 7 hours and on Wednesday to Monday the chance to buy 30 extra gas each day. If this is still not enough you can buy unlimited gas for 24 hours for £2, then any gas you find in after mission crates will keep adding up so when the 24 hours is over you will likely have a good stockpile.
    It’s a great game so stick with it.

    It IS a great game...when covid hit and we unlimited gas for a week... I was shocked that I hit 100 gas cans just by playing the game. My new 'mission' is to accumulate 9999 cans see what happens...I'm at just over 3400 :) ... haven't spent a dime ;)

    There is no cap I don't think. I've seen players with more than 10k gas who only play with a gas booster.

    As you continue to level, new game modes become unlocked. Those new game modes will give you more things to do, including some which cost much less gas.

    Upgrade your farms first and then your gas car next. Try to keep them upgrading as fast as you can and you will begin unlocking new game modes soon.

    Things to do while you wait for gas.
