  • Weighted Point is the weighted consumption rate which is calculated by: (resource consumption rate / maximum extraction rate) * 10,000. The lower the better.
  • Energy per item can be used to measure how much power is consumed for the entire production chain. The lower the better.
  • Space refers to building space, excluding belts and pipes. The lower the better.
  • Energy for sinking byproducts are considered, assuming using Conveyor Belt Mk.4.
  • As 1 m3 of Fuel contains 750 MJ, subtracting its manufacturing energy will show the net energy gain.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Diluted Fuel alternate recipe is 10% more power-efficient than the Diluted Packaged Fuel alternate recipe. To produce 300 m3/min Fuel, either three Blenders at 100 m3/min and 75 MW are used, consuming 225 MW, or five Refineries at 60 m3/min and 30 MW (consuming 150 MW), five packaging Packagers at 120 m3/min at 10 MW (consuming 50 MW) and five unpackaging Packagers at 60 m3/min at 10 MW (consuming 50 MW), consuming 250 MW. It is, therefore, all-round more power-efficient to use Diluted Fuel.
