Fuel is used to power spaceships during FTL travel. The amount of fuel required depends on the distance being traveled.
|different sector or different solar system||200 fuel|
|same system, different orbit||50 fuel|
|same orbit, neighboring planet||1 fuel|
Coal provides just 2 fuel. It is the basic fuel found on level 1 planets and above. It can be found on the surface or underground. Unrefined Wood, while not a fuel itself, can be burnt in a Furnace to produce Coal at a 10:1 ratio.
Uranium Ore provides 4 fuel. It can be found on level 5 planets and above.
Plutonium Ore provides 6 fuel. It can be found deep inside Meteorites in the outer atmosphere of a planet. It is also a common resource on high level planets in Sector X. It must be mined with a diamond drill. Due to the high availability on higher level planets and notable fuel value, this will be the most efficient fuel source at higher levels.
Solarium Ore provides 8 fuel. It is extremely rare as an ore, typically appearing in clusters of 1-4 at most. Solarium ore can only be found on level 9 and 10 planets.
