How to Make Gasoline in Ark

by Georgie Peru

Learning how to make gasoline in Ark is essential to keeping your base’s generator going. Although taming dinosaurs and surviving the Ark take precedence in the game’s mechanics, maintaining an efficient fuel source is just as important.

Gasoline in Ark can be used to fuel various items like the Electrical Generator, Chemistry Bench, Industrial Cooker, Industrial Forge, Industrial Grill, and Fabricator.

Making Gasoline

Making gasoline is pretty simple once you have the required materials. You’ll need 5x Oil and 3x Hide to make 5x Gasoline in the Refining Forge.

To make a lot of gasoline, you can place the same ingredients into an Industrial Forge, allowing you to produce up to 100 Gasoline at a time.

Where to Find Oil in Ark

You can gather oil by using a Pick on an oil node. The Metal Pick yields more oil per node than a Stone Pick.

Oil tends to spawn mainly in the ocean, in underwater caves, and in nodes on ground level, depending on the Ark map you’re playing. For example, in Genesis 2, you can buy oil from HLNA’s store and gather it from the space biome.

As well as farming oil, you can gather it from tamed Dung Beetles, Hesperornis egg in the Cooking Pot, Tusoteuthis, and Basilosaurus.
