What fuel sources do turtles accept? It seems that they used to accept more sources than they do now, and by now I mean any of the 1.5.2 mods, and by before I mean pre-1.5.2 mods.

  • The wiki is not accurate at this time as the new packs have only recently been released and many (most if not all) of the changes are not updated.

    @ratchetfreak used to be other things worked too, like batteries and energy crystals, and lets not forget charge stations. I want a comprehensive description of all things that work as of the current version, and perhaps bonus points for all things that used to work and no longer work\ or used to NOT work and now DO

1 Answer 1


Your question ended up intriguing me and so here's the results of my testing for 1.5.2

Note: all testing was done in the FTB Unleashed modpack, I make no guarantees that gregtech or similar mods won't change any of this if they are used

Usable Liquid fuels

  • Any liquid that can be used as a fuel source for an engine or generator, except for buildcraft oil and fuel, and dartcraft force.
  • lava will only work if provided in either buckets or cells, all other liquids seem to work in any container

Usable Solid fuels

  • anything that can be burned in a furnace or a generator
  • uranium ore, refined uranium, and all cells excluding near-depleted and re-enriched (only if an RTG module is fitted and the refuel is done by calling the refuel method on the peripheral directly from lua)

Usable blocks and items

  • turtle charge stations

Unusable sources

  • energy crystals, lapotronic crystals, and other similar EU storage
  • buildcraft oil and fuel (as mentioned above)
  • dartcraft force (also as mentioned above)
  • uranium ore works!?!? how much do you get for it

  • Uranium ore / refined uranium / uranium cell all provide 1000000 fuel units at a rate of 1 unit per 50 ticks. Double and quad cells provide 2x and 4x the amount of fuel, as expected. Aug 31, 2013 at 4:07
