Fuels are used in engines to generate mechanical power. There are four different types of fuel: diesel, jet fuel, coal, and nuclear fuel rods.


Diesel[]

Diesel fuel is used by small engines, medium engines, large engines, and modular engines.

In career mode, when vehicles are spawned in with diesel fuel in fuel tanks or cargo holds, a cost of $1/L is charged. The same amount is refunded for any vehicle which is despawned.

Warning: Fluid tanks with both fluid ports connected will only store 64% of their normal amount. If you have your tank fill level set to 100% on spawning, you will get charged for whatever the tank could normally hold, but only actually get 64% of that. When you despawn, you will then not be refunded for the fuel that you didn't receive. You can avoid this by setting the fluid tank fill level to 64% instead of 100%.

Jet fuel[]

Jet fuel is used by jet combustion chambers in jet engines.

In career mode, when vehicles are spawned in with jet fuel in fuel tanks or cargo holds, a cost of $4/L is charged. The same amount is refunded for any vehicle which is despawned.

Note that jet engines tend to use less fuel than diesel engines to generate the same force, though jet fuel is more expensive.

Warning: Fluid tanks with both fluid ports connected will only store 64% of their normal amount. If you have your tank fill level set to 100% on spawning, you will get charged for whatever the tank could normally hold, but only actually get 64% of that. When you despawn, you will then not be refunded for the fuel that you didn't receive. You can avoid this by setting the fluid tank fill level to 64% instead of 100%.

Coal[]

Coal is used by fireboxes in steam engines.

In career mode, when vehicles are spawned with coal in their coal hoppers, a cost of $1/unit is charged. Note that vehicles with coal which are despawned will not be refunded for the unused coal.

Coal can also be purchased at the Sawyer Islands' Dean Hall Mining Company (about 3 km south of the North Harbor base by road) or at the Donkk Island coal mine (near Terminal Spycakes). It is generally bought for $1.5-2/unit. It can be sold for around $4-5 at Terminal Camodo or at the railway station near O'Neill Airbase. Alternatively, it can be sold for about $37-38/unit at Terminal Trinite in the arctic.
