The Small Oil Refinery is a deployable oject which is used to refine Crude Oil into Low Grade Fuel. It has to be placed on open terrain, and does not use a foundation. It is also found as an indestructible object at Monuments such as the Airfield and Industrial Train Yard. The most reliable way to obtain Crude Oil is with the Pump Jack.
The Refinery is used to refine Crude Oil as the Furnace is used to refine Metal Ore and Sulfur Ore and such. Simply put in Crude Oil and fuel, and turn the refinery on. The refinery will then stay on until it is turned off or it runs out of fuel. One Crude Oil will be converted into 3 Low Grade Fuel.
The refinery is quite an efficient way to obtain large amounts of fuel, even though it has to be fueled itself. Given the input of 7 Wood one could convert 1 Crude Oil into 3 Low Grade Fuel. It takes 6 2/3 Wood per Crude Oil, so 1k for 150 cans.
Efficient Refining Edit
The Small Oil Refinery was a default recipe and could be crafted with:
- It takes 120 seconds to craft one Small Oil Refinery.
- The name could be taken to mean that there was a larger refinery planned.
