Fire on the ground lasts 2 seconds. Area of effect size applies to igniting objects and contact damage. Objects are ignited for 30 seconds.

This ammunition is used for the flamethrower. Currently this is the only available type of flamethrower ammunition.

Note that flamethrower turrets use oil directly instead of this ammo.

Production

The refinery is running basic oil processing and its heavy and light oil outputs are directly connected to a chemical plant producing flamethrower ammo.

Basic oil processing has the perfect output ratio for flamethrower ammo (1 light oil : 1 heavy oil), so a refinery can be dedicated to producing it, generating excess petroleum gas. Since the chemical plant consumes the oil faster than the refinery, it will not produce ammo the entire time.
