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.
