Flamer fuel is a type of ammunition in Fallout: New Vegas.


A mixture of petro-chemicals and other flammable compounds for use in specialty flamethrowers.

Occasionally, flamer fuel will leave behind drained flamer fuel tanks, four of which can be combined at a workbench into a new fuel tank. The Vigilant Recycler perk reduces this to 3 empty tanks.

Weapons using this ammunition




¹ As Vigilant Recycler requires Science 70, optimized flamer fuel can not be made at the skill listed in the workbench.


Flamer fuel, homemade

Homemade flamer fuel is made from corn based ingredients to produce an ethanol mixture combined with the flammable properties of detergent to create a deadly fuel mixture. The homemade fuel mixture can quickly degrade the flamer due to the crude nature of the fuel. Every recipe yields 20 units of fuel (a Science skill of 50 is needed to produce the fuel).

Flamer fuel, optimized (Vigilant Recycler) (GRA)

Added in Gun Runners' Arsenal, this sub-type causes 30% more damage, penetrates armor more effectively, and weighs less than the standard flamer fuel. The only drawback is a slight increase in weapon degradation. It requires Vigilant Recycler and can only be crafted at a workbench.
