Luckily, we have you covered with a guide on how to get Fuel Bottles and all its uses currently in Marauders.

How to get Marauders Fuel

Fuel can be acquired through one main source:

Containers in Raids
Fuel Bottles are a rare item found during Raids. Loot plenty of containers and bodies and you’ll quickly come across a few Fuel Bottles. Fuel can be found in any type of container, whether that be a simple cardboard box or a military-style crate; be sure not to overlook the common boxes.

If you’re hunting for Fuel specifically, you’ll want to bring a bag to increase your inventory space since one Fuel Bottle stack will take up two inventory spaces, though each stack can hold three Fuel Bottles.

Scrapping items using the crafting system
Unfortunately, Fuel Bottles cannot be acquired through deconstructing items, unlike Synthetic Scrap, for instance.

What are Fuel Bottles used for?

Fuel Bottles are used solely as a Crafting Component in Marauders and are used in some of the most expensive items in the game - upgraded ships. While you will always have access to a trusty Rustbucket, those looking for more firepower and protection when travelling to and from a Raid may want to invest in upgraded ships. In this case, you will need Fuel, and lots of it since the number of materials needed, including Fuel, increases alongside the quality of the ship; the Scout Frigate is cheap relative to the Capital Frigate.

It is possible that more craftable items will require Fuel as a component in the future as more recipes are added to Marauders over time.

Fuel Bottles are used in the following crafting recipes:

This guide will be updated as more items are discovered.

While the effectiveness of these upgraded ships is certainly up for debate, especially for those playing solo making an investment in a ship a much riskier prospect, getting Fuel now could save you a lot of hassle if they are ever improved or if you fancy parading your new firepower for the fun of it. You will undoubtedly be intimidating travelling to the Raid location in a Capital Frigate armed to the teeth.
