Fortnite cars have now been around for a while, but they still remain the exclusive method of transport to effectively traverse the island on land, so the question of "where are the Fortnite cars" is one that often gets asked. Players also tend to look for advice on how to drive Fortnite cars once they've got hold of a vehicle, especially as the steering can be confusing if you're not used to the control scheme. On top of that, these motors need a supply of fuel to continue on their journeys, so knowing where to find Fortnite gas stations is essential for longer road trips. To help with all this, we've got information on how to find cars and drive them in Fortnite, including where the Fortnite gas station locations are to keep your motor running, in our complete Fortnite cars guide.

You can find Fortnite cars in many locations around the island, and while we've marked a decent number to get you started in a pinch, the map above is not intended to be exhaustive – you honestly won't have to look far when you're running around to find one. Don't be fooled by vehicles that have a wheel clamp attached, however, as these are fixed parts of the scenery and cannot be driven.

Fortnite cars work in the same way as the other vehicles in Fortnite, so approach one and interact to hop in, then you'll be able to switch seats at your leisure and ferry your teammates back and forth. The controls can take a bit of getting used to, as pushing up and down on the left stick affects acceleration and braking along with the pad triggers. Steering is controlled by pushing left and right on the left stick, but bear in mind that your vehicle will also try to drive in the direction the camera is facing so you can't look around you without changing your travel trajectory.

    Note - the Whiplash has now been replaced by the
    Fortnite Ferrari

These Fortnite cars also have built-in radio stations to listen to a variety of music, including licensed tracks and general Fortnite themes.

How to fit off-road tires on Fortnite cars

You can find Fortnite off-road tires as floor loot in various places around the island, and if you visit a gas station then you're very likely to find some in the area. Once you have your new wheels in your inventory, simply throw them at one of the Fortnite cars to expand its tires into chonky alternatives, which allow you to drive over most obstacles and scale almost vertical cliffs.

Fortnite cars require gas in order to keep driving, which means that the Fortnite gas stations play an important role. We've marked all of the Fortnite gas station locations on the map above, and here is a list of where you'll find them:

  • West of Holly Hedges
  • West side of Believer Beach
  • East side of Boney Burbs
  • East side of Pleasant Park
  • South of Craggy Cliffs
  • West of Steamy Stacks
  • East of Corny Crops
  • South of Corny Crops
  • North of Sludgy Swamp
  • West of Misty Meadows
  • West side of Lazy Lake
  • South of Catty Corner

To refuel Fortnite cars, simply park up close to one of the Fortnite gas pumps then get out and interact with it – this allows you to squirt fuel straight at the vehicle to fill it. If you're carrying a gas can then you use that in the same way, and if you approach a gas pump with it equipped the prompt will let you refill the can.

Give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
