Nuclear fuel is a new type of [[fuel]] introduced in game version 0.16. It has the highest energy density and vehicle bonuses of all the fuel types, providing an acceleration bonus of 250% (compared to [[Rocket fuel|rocket fuel]]'s 180%). The vehicle speed bonus (15%) is the same as for rocket fuel.

While nuclear fuel has 5.38 times the fuel value of rocket fuel in per-unit terms, it does not stack (i.e., stack size is 1), while rocket fuel stacks to 10, meaning that a full tank of rocket fuel will last nearly twice as long as a full tank of nuclear fuel. Also, for vehicles with a single-slot fuel inventory ([[car]] only), additional units must be held in the main inventory. (Although, as always, fuel units in the process of being burned do not show up in the fuel inventory, effectively giving room for a single spare in the car.)

Nuclear fuel is a type of fuel. It has the highest energy density and vehicle bonuses of all the fuel types, providing an acceleration bonus of 250% (compared to rocket fuel's 180%). The vehicle speed bonus (15%) is the same as for rocket fuel.

Nuclear fuel is made from rocket fuel and uranium-235, one of each to produce one unit of nuclear fuel.

Trivia

The fuel value of 1.21 GJ is a reference to the movie Back to the Future, in which the flux capacitor requires "1.21 Jigawatts" to function.
