Overview[ | ]

A Gas Can is a item crafted when the player is crafting Oil Shale at a Chemistry Station into Gas. They are often found within industrial areas and inside vehicles and can be looted from gas pumps at a Gas Station. The Gas Can is also the source of fuel needed for motorized tools.

It should be noted that 1 Oil Shale will produce 2 increments of Gas. Each Gas Can holds a limit of 10,000 units of Gas.

Once the Gas in the Gas Can has been exhausted the Gas Can will disappear from the players inventory and no empty Gas Can is left on the floor. The Gas Can only exists so long as there is Gas inside of it.

History[ | ]

  • Gas is now counted in smaller numbers. 1 Gas Can in Alpha 12 = 100 Gas Cans in Alpha 13. This was done because of the new harvesting system.
  • The harvesting system allows you to harvest gas cans from Cars in the world using the Wrench (left click on the car).
  • Also Oil Shale was added to Desert Biomes when you dig down which can be crafted into Gas Cans.
  • The gas pumps at the Gas Station now re spawn loot as well instead of being a one time loot. Unless you have the no loot re spawn setting on.
  • In Alpha 21.1 yield was lowered from 5 to 2 from one piece of shale.
