Fuel is a material item that is used to power the chainsaw, it was added along side it in update v0.60 to The Forest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Fuel cans do not respawn in single player, use your fuel wisely. Some fuel cans respawn in multiplayer games on reloading. The Chainsaw does not use fuel when idling. Fuel currently has no other uses.

(Tentative edit, Please confirm: As of build Alpha 0.73, it may be possible for a single fuel can to respawn upon re loading the save file in cave 1 in the area that you find the Katana and a large stash of watches in single player. But only 1 of the 2 cans found there respawn and the location is a bit out of the way. It may be possible for this to have been changed in versions beyond Alpha 0.73. Please feel free to confirm this.)

It does respawn. Spotted fuel respawning in the center village.

It also respawns in the big stash near the cave 2 enterance/exit.
