I cannot seem to get a fixed (non variable) price. I want to buy and sell Diesel at 1.0. When I buy it it's correct but the sales price fluctuates like all other products no matter what I set the price in filltypes or the selling station. I need it to always be 1 without variation.

Variable prices are established feature of the economy manager and are depending on supply and demand.
A massive change you can prevent by setting the sellingStation xml attribute
<fillType ... disablePriceDrop="true" />

Thank you for the reply! Thats what I did. However, it doesn't keep the price fixed.

So If I by Diesel at the gasStation and but 500L for 500 dollars, the sell price back to a sell point is more valuable and almost double.

<fillType name="diesel" priceScale="1" supportsGreatDemand="false" disablePriceDrop="true" />

in Filltypes xml price is also "1" but in game varies with the market example 1,800 per 1000L (1.8) instead of just staying at 1000 per Liter like I want it. I always want it to be worth 1 whether selling or buying.

Like I said: the 'disablePriceDrop' prevents massive! changes, but not changes at all.

For manipulating the economy manager one had to write a custom script. Just not very easy, since there's barely documented something.

I see thats disappointing. So you cant ever have a product buy and sell for the same price...Thats kind of crazy.
Thank you for the fast responses.
