A dangerous and volatile substance, syphoned from moons and used as FTL fuel.

Value 1

Liquid Erchius Fuel is a gatherable liquid. Each unit provides 1 unit of fuel for player ships. Upon collecting the fuel, an Erchius Ghost will spawn and pursue the player endlessly. When holding any fuel in the inventory, the player will glow purple and will glow brighter as more fuel is collected.

It is found in underground caverns on moons. It can be mined like any other liquid, requiring the Manipulator Module upgrade for gathering liquid to be unlocked before any can be collected. Another alternative source for fuel is Crystal Erchius Fuel, which is a good alternative to people who haven't unlocked the liquid collection upgrade.


Unlike any other liquid, it's the only liquid to have a sell price. Also, when it touches the lava ocean at the core of most planets, nothing happens (all other liquids either convert into lava or evaporate entirely). In fact, it normally has no interactions with other liquids at all (so much for being "dangerous and volatile").
