Refuel vehicles and generators|
A gas can is a drainable item that becomes an empty gas can once used.
An empty gas can only be filled with gasoline and therefore cannot be filled with water. It is possible to refill a gas can by either siphoning gas from a vehicle, or at a gas pump. It should be noted that without a source of power, a gas pump will not function.
A gas can contains gasoline which can be poured into vehicles, filling their gas tank. Along with vehicles, it is also the primary source of fuel for generators. One full gas can will refill 80% of a generator's fuel tank.
A gas can can be used as a kindling when starting a campfire. Having a gas can in the secondary slot, with a lighter in the primary, it is possible to burn corpses, removing any negative moodles that are caused by their presence.
A full gas can is used in crafting molotov cocktails and flame traps. Note that the flame trap can only be crafted by those with the engineer occupation, and cannot be learnt with a recipe magazine.
||A handy weapon that causes fire to burn surrounding tiles. A Lighter in the secondary slot is required to use.
