|Extracts oil from the ground.|
—Information accurate as of: build 904.83
The Pump Jack uses 1 Low Grade Fuel to produce 1 Crude Oil. Crude Oil can then be refined with the Small Oil Refinery for a 1:2 Crude Oil:Low Grade Fuel net return (1 Crude Oil will produce 3 Low Grade Fuel, minus the one that was used to fuel the Pump Jack).
Similar to the Mining Quarry, but instead the output is Crude Oil. Once fuel is put in, its engine can be started and the Pump Jack will operate until turned off or it runs out of fuel. Over time the Pump Jack will automatically pump Crude Oil which can then be collected. The Pump Jack is available only in Radioactive Town locations or near a small warehouse location.
Pumpjacks became no longer craftable as a deployable object as of Devblog #87.
- The Pump Jack makes a significant amount of noise. It is easily spotted from afar, and the movement of its parts give a clear indication that it is in use. It can easily attract attention from other players.
