Fuel powered engine is a moderately powerful engine, useful when large quantities of refined BC fuel are readily available.

Rotarycraft Handbook DescriptionEdit

"The fuel-powered engine runs off of Buildcraft fuel to product shaft power. It performs similarly to that mod's combustion engine in terms of power output. It requires both lubricant and water cooling, and will decelerate as it overheats."


Power 524.488 kW
Torque 2048 Nm

Tips & TricksEdit

  • There is no fuel gauge available but the engine responds to the ECU for an on/off switch.
  • Each bucket of lubricant lasts approximately 26.5 minutes (0.628 mb/s). This means that a single Fuel-Powered Engine with a 16:1 gearbox powering a grinder can lubricate slightly over 19 (including itself) fuel-powered engines.
  • Each bucket of fuel lasts 15 minutes (1.11 mb/s fuel usage)
