|For an overview of flamer fuel ammunition types in the Fallout series of games, see Flamethrower fuel.|
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
A mixture of petro-chemicals and other flammable compounds for use in specialty flamethrowers.
Production[edit | edit source]
Box of detergent (1)
Sugar bombs (1)
Flamer fuel, homemade (20)
Recycling[edit | edit source]
After use, there is a chance that the drained flamer fuel tank will be recovered and placed in the player character's inventory. Drained fuel tanks can then be recycled back into a usable tank at a workbench.

Variants[edit | edit source]
Flamer fuel, homemade[edit | edit source]
Homemade flamer fuel is made from corn-based ingredients to produce an ethanol mixture combined with the flammable properties of detergent to create a deadly fuel mixture. Due to the crude nature of the fuel, homemade fuel severely stresses a flamer, degrading its condition three times as quickly. Every recipe yields 20 units of fuel. A Science skill of 50 is needed to produce the fuel.
Flamer fuel, optimized[edit | edit source]
Added in Gun Runners' Arsenal, this sub-type causes 30% more damage, provides some Damage Threshold negation, and weighs less than the standard flamer fuel. The only drawbacks are a slight (10%) increase in weapon degradation and increased fuel usage (it takes three regular units to produce two optimized ones). It requires Vigilant Recycler and can only be crafted at a workbench.

Locations[edit | edit source]
- Can sometimes be purchased at the Dino Bite gift shop.
- Can be purchased at the Silver Rush, as flame-throwers are classed as energy weapons.
- Can also be found on destroyed Mister Gutsy and Mister Handy robots.
- Can often be found on the Fiends located in Vault 3.
- Can be purchased from the Boomer munitions manager in the Nellis hangars.
Notes[edit | edit source]
Optimized flamer fuel is the only way to get any Damage Threshold reduction out of any weapon using flamer fuel.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Detergents can be used as fuel additives. Typical detergents are long-chain amines and amides such as polyisobuteneamine and polyisobuteneamide/succinimide.
