Why buy your neighbors goods on FarmVille?

Goods you buy from your neighbours can be used to top-up your fuel supply. The higher the level good you buy, the more fuel you will get in return. Level 1 goods give you enough fuel for around 30 plots, and each level increase will give you fuel for an extra five plots.

Put simply, buying goods from friends is a way to buy fuel for coins rather than farmville cash. Buying goods will also earn you achievement ribbons.

Buying goods also helps your neighbours improve their recipes which helps them expand the size of their crafting buildings and allows them to make you higher level goods that will give you larger amounts of fuel for coins in the future. It also helps your neighbours earn more coins.
