Peat-fired engine

Page: Machines.EngineCopper - Last Modified : Tue, 10 Jul 12

Peat-fired engines require peat for operation and produce ash in the process. A peat-fired engine requires a redstone signal to operate.

Peat will burn for a very long duration. A single stack can burn for many hours. However it only produces power equivalent to a steam engine at 1 MJ/t. One will need a large number of peat-fired engines to be able to burn the peat produced by a single peat bog. These engines are cheap to produce and make a great early power source.

The ash that is produced from this process is the cheapest way to make fertilizer. 1.5 peat will produce 1.0 ash.

These engines have one inventory slot for peat and four for ash. They will stop operation when all inventory slots for ash are full. The peat-fired engine can go through six stacks of peat before the ash completely fills it's internal storage.
