Instant has unfortunately not been updated to support EIP1559 style transactions. It uses https://ethgasstation.info/json/ethgasAPI.json for gas prices which is still providing legacy transaction gas prices.

The way that legacy transactions are handled post EIP1559 is that the priority fee and max gas price are both set to the value of the legacy gas price, this unfortunately leads to the user overpaying for the transaction.

The code for gas price fetching can be found here, if you would like to help fix this issue we welcome contributions to the Instant codebase. In that case please open an issue in the Instant repository and we can help you fix this issue 👍
