Gasoline – ARK Survival Evolved Guide

This guide details the Gasoline resource in ARK: Survival Evolved. It will cover the Gasoline recipe, burn times, and how to obtain the ingredients required to make Gasoline.

What is Gasoline in ARK Survival Evolved?

Ark gasoline is a specialized fuel used to power various machines within ARK.

It is used to power items such as the Electrical Generator, Fabricator, Industrial Grill, Chemistry Bench, Motorboat, Industrial Forge, Industrial Grinder, Zip-Line Motor Attachment, Chainsaw, and Mining Drill.

It can be thought of as the magical spark that ignites these powerful tools.
