This is the best Engine to make if using the most advanced modules. This is very good for mining since lasts a long time. The coal engine is a better version of the Tiny Coal Engine

Reinforced Hull with Coal Engine and Top Chest

 Above is a Reinforced Hull with a Coal Engine. Actually, both models, the tiny one and this, look identical. Minecarts with a coal engine (like Powered Minecarts or other Furnace Minecarts) are a special type of minecart which accept coal,charcoal or any other fuel for powered movement (a list of all acceptable fuel is shown on the right) and can be also used to push other Minecarts, as wll as functioning as an Engine. It's most common use is acting like a much more efficient way of moving than using powered rails. This engine has 3 slots to put fuel in, this will last longer than the tiny one. The amount of fuel per item is larger for this engine too, as shown on the right.

Coal Engine Interface

Above is how the interface looks. On the top right is the engine priority button. Simply hold "alt" to add stacks of fuel to the engine.
The maximum is 3 x 64 Items or 3 Lava Buckets.

The Engine works only with the Standard and Reinforced Hulls. It's too complex for the others.


This is how its made:
You need 5 Iron Ingots, a Furnance in the middle and 2 Pistons on the bottom
