This page covers the Mod version of DayZ. For information on the Standalone see Vehicles
There are numerous vehicles present in DayZ, usually in poor repair or completely non-functioning. They spawn in various locations across Chernarus and can be difficult to locate due to high player numbers
They allow for relatively easy travel, but are considered a high value object to all players so caution should be used when using, repairing or attacking them.

Refueling[edit | edit source]
Refueling vehicles requires a Jerry Can (20L) or Fuel Can (5L). Typically fuel cans are full when found, but will require refilling eventually. This can be done by approaching the large fuel tanks with the can in your main inventory, and selecting the Refill option with your mouse wheel. This process is instant.
Once you have a full fuel can, approach the vehicle and select the Refuel option. This will start the refueling animation, moving during this will cancel the refuel and require you to restart the process.
If you are unable to locate a fuel tank to fill your fuel cans, you can siphon fuel from another vehicle whilst having the can equipment. Simply approach the vehicle and select the siphon option; be mindful that siphoning requires a hose.

Vehicle FAQ[edit | edit source]
Are all vehicles repairable?
- No, only the ones that can be entered. Even vehicles that have recently exploded cannot be repaired.
Can I save items inside backpacks, which are inside vehicles?
- Any items you store into backpacks and store inside a vehicle will only be saved until the next server restart.
Will my vehicle stay where I left it?
- Exiting out of a vehicle will save the location.
- Other people can (and will) take or destroy the vehicle if they find it.
- If a vehicle is unused, bugged or left, it will respawn after a minimum of 7 days.
Do all the vehicles look like the ones in the pictures?
- No, they can have many different paint jobs. For example, you can find a Red GAZ with a black interior or a motorcycle with flame decals on it.
Do all vehicles have gear access?
- Yes, apart from some watercraft and the Old Bike, all vehicles can have gear access. If you cannot find the gear tab on the outside of the vehicle. Jump in back seat, scroll down to gear and select it. This will open the vehicles gear slots. If you can't find the gear slot even when inside the vehicle, switch to driver's seat then back to back seat. This can overcome the issues people have with the buses etc. You may also press "M" and then go to units, gear, you will be able to transfer items to and from you inventory->Vehicle and visa versa.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Vehicles are very fragile. Although (depending on the size) you can drive over fences and other objects it is highly recommended to avoid any collision with the environment.
- While in a vehicle with wheels, or watercraft, you can use three different keys for acceleration. Q is for slower speeds, W lets you go faster, while holding E gets you going as fast as possible. (This does not work with helicopters, as pressing E will possibly send you in a nosedive.
- When you have spotted a vehicle in a town or an airfield, be careful for it may be a trap.
