The Fuel Generator is a Building which generates 150MW of Power by using Fuel.png Fuel as input item.[1] The fuel burn time is 5 seconds.

Fuel energy values[edit | edit source]

Energy is given in MJ.

Fuel Type Energy Stack Size Energy/Stack Burn time(sec)
Fuel.png Fuel 750 100 75k 5
Biofuel.png Biofuel 300 200 60k 2
Fuel.png Turbofuel 2000 100 200k 13.3

Generators per node[edit | edit source]

A single crude oil node can support the following number of fuel generators operating a peak capacity:

Purity
Oil Pumped/
Minute

Power
Rounded-down
Power
Impure 60 1 3.125* 468.75 MW 450 MW **
Normal 120 2 6.25* 937.5 MW 900 MW **
Pure 240 4 12.5* 1875 MW 1800 MW **
  • *The decimal in the Number of fuel generator column means the last generator might not be able to run at 100%. Underclock the last generator to prevent power trip.
  • ** Value calculated from the rounded down number of fuel generators.


The equation is as follows:

Oil Pumped Per Min\times 0.625 \times Fuel Burn Time \over 60sec

For a fuel generator that is not overclocked, Fuel burn time is 5 seconds (displayed next to the stopwatch in the fuel generator UI).

Fuel burn time and peak capacity[edit | edit source]

The real Fuel Burn Time with all generators depends on the amount of power actually being used. However, the UI does not show the real burn time, it shows the burn time if the generator is operating at peak capacity.

So, the 5 seconds burn time for Fuel Generators shown in game is how long it takes to burn 1 Fuel if all of the power that the generator can possibly produce is being used.

For example: if a base has 1 Fuel Generator, and is using all of the possible 150 MW, the fuel burn time will be 5 seconds. But, if the base is only using 75 MW, the fuel burn time will be (supposedly) doubled. (More research needed on this)

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Fuel Generator, like all power generating buildings, behaves differently to other buildings when overclocked. See Clock Speed for more info.
  • Biofuel can be used to feed fuel generators.
