AWESOME Sink[edit | edit source]

 Empty Canister can be sunk into the AWESOME Sink.png AWESOME Sink to yield 60 points.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Some packaged fluids are far more useful than others. Packaged Water, for example, is necessary for Diluted Packaged Fuel.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Canisters appear to change form depending on what fluid is packaged. They retain their original shape when packaging Fuel, Turbofuel, or Liquid Biofuel, but when packaging Oil or Water, they change to a metal barrel or gallon container, respectively.
  • Every packaged fluid except for Water can be used as vehicle fuel.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Patch 0.3.6: Two alternate recipes introduced (Steel Canister and Coated Iron Canister)
  • Patch 0.3.3.4: Unpackaging Heavy Oil Residue now gives back the right amount of Canisters
  • Patch 0.3: Introduced
