Gas Engine is an item in Scrap Mechanic.
Overview[edit | edit source]
An engine with fixed speed and adjustable power, ideally suited to powering vehicles. Can be connected to a driver's seat or triggers.
Usage[edit | edit source]
After you place the engine, you must turn it on in order for it to work. Keep in mind, if you plan on having the engine controlled by a Driver's Seat or a trigger, you should connect it before starting the engine. If you connect an engine to bearings without connecting the engine to a control part, the engine is active, and it isn't on the Lift, the engine will automatically start. Removing a connected control part will automatically start the engine as well.
Press E on the engine to bring up the GUI. Click and drag the slider to any position above OFF to activate it. The slider controls the power of the engine, not the speed (speed is constant). The heavier the vehicle is, the more power is needed to move it. If it's set too low for the vehicle's weight, the vehicle will move slowly or not move at all. If it's set too high for its weight, the vehicle may flip over frequently.
