Drive In, Fly Out!

Red Rocket was a pre-War company that operated a nation-wide chain of filling stations for automobiles, characteristic for their Raygun Gothic architecture.

Background[edit | edit source]

The company started its rise in an age when gasoline and diesel were still common fuels.[1] The fossil fuel market crash and the beginning of the Resource Wars in 2052 and the invention of practical fusion energy cells in 2066,[2][3] Red Rocket expanded rapidly nationwide, offering fusion and coolant refilling services, as an early adopter. Many of its old gas stations were retrofitted with apparatus for maintaining and refilling nuclear engines, sometimes without even removing old warning signs.[4]

Services[edit | edit source]

  • Red Rocket stations provided refueling services for fossil fuel and later nuclear engines. The latter included refueling the onboard reactors and replacing spent coolant. Coolant was available in at least two varieties: Coolant A ($103.99 per unit) and Coolant C ($113.99 per unit). The smallest stations were little more than an awning with the characteristic rocket and filling pumps delivering fuel and coolant from underground tanks. As time went on and the economic crisis worsened, Red Rocket shifted to robotics, eliminating the need for pump attendants and station staff.[5]
  • Large Red Rocket stations would go beyond the usual vending machines and include complete convenience stores with local and national brands, including Nuka-Cola soft drinks and Grey Tortoise cigarettes.[6] The facilities would also offer car washing services, frequently offered in bundles with refueling. Unlike small, automated stations, these establishments would allow clients to choose between full service by a station attendant, self service, or automated service.[7]
