The world of Ark Survival Evolved is a beautiful combination of futuristic technology and a primitive past. As humans living in the future, you are tasked with your survival on a lone island, surrounded by prehistoric animals, fantasy beasts, and other hostile humans. No wonder this game by Studio WildCard became an instant hit, as it presents a dystopian view of what will happen when the future meets the past. Speaking of survival, you possibly can’t survive on your feet on this island filled with both prehistoric and fantasy beasts. For that, you need tools. Tools need to be powered to make them work. But what powers the tools? Fuel. For your survival in Ark Survival Evolved, you’ll need to know how to craft/make Gasoline. So, in this guide, we have shared details on the same.
Ark Survival Evolved: How to craft/make Gasoline
Fortunately, crafting gasoline in Ark Survival Evolved is an easy task. At Level 20, you’ll gain access to a structure called a Refining Forge, which essentially refines Metal into Metal ingots and Oil into Gasoline. You don’t have to get the engram; the game automatically provides you with the ability to use the Forge.
If you are poised to make a lot of Gasoline, consider crafting an Industrial Forge. Compared to the Refining Forge, this stone structure can deliver gasoline in batches of 100, meaning in about 30 seconds, you’ll get 100 units of gasoline if you have the required ingredients.
To make gasoline in Ark Survival Evolved, you’ll need 6x Oil and 5x Hide. In that way, you’ll be getting 5x gasoline in 30 seconds. Obviously, you’ll need something to fire up the Refining Forge, so stack up on some Thatch or Wood to exactly do that.
Collecting the Ingredients
Collecting the ingredients for gasoline in Ark Survival Evolved is a daunting task compared to crafting it. Here we give you some pointers on how to get started collecting ingredients to craft gasoline.
One way to get oil is by harvesting it from Trilobites. They are small chitinous creatures found in shallow water in small groups or on beaches. They are easier to harvest from, as they don’t fight back when attacked, but other Trilobites nearby flee when you attack one of them. Another way to get Oil is by attacking Tek creatures, especially Tek Parasaurs and Tek Raptors. Tek Parasaurs are easier to fight, so you can count them as one of the best ways to collect oil. The best option to collect oil on every map is Oil Nodes. Oil Nodes, although often found in the deep ocean parts, are also found above ground in the Snow Biome and on various icebergs.
Once you have enough oil, you now need to get Hide. Fortunately, getting them isn’t quite a difficult task, as they can be found when harvesting the corpses of various creatures in the game. Once you have the ingredients, head to the Forge, and craft as much gasoline as you want. Anyway, we hope this guide helped you in your search for crafting/making Gasoline in Ark Survival Evolved.
