Asdongarage.gif Your Asdon Martin is parked in your workshed and the fuel gauge reads X litres of fuel.

Activate Fuel Convertor
This machine has a gas-pump-style hose, a display showing how much fuel your Asdon Martin has remaining, and a funnel. Apparently it converts food and booze into gasoline. Or bio-ethanol, or whatever it would be called. Turns out your car is way less picky about what it drinks than you are.
The fuel gauge currently reads: X
  • Converting food:
You stuff the <food> down the funnel, and the machine makes BZONK CHONK CHONK CHONK ZZZZZZRP gurgle GWOOOSSSH beedle-deedle-boop PLOINK! noises as it converts the food into fuel and pumps it into the Asdon Martin. The display updates with a pleep!
  • Converting booze:
You pour the <booze> into the funnel on the fuel converter, and it makes a GLURGLE-URGLE-URGLE pchank-kachank FWIZZZZZZZ GWOOOSSSH beedle-deedle-boop PLOINK! sound as the booze is converted to fuel and pumped into the Asdon Martin. The display updates with a pleep!
Drive!
  • You can start driving nine different ways, each taking 37 fuel to give 30 turns of an effect. You can drive:
  • Obnoxiously
You turn on "Obnoxious Driving Mode" and with a BOING GOING GOING several signs on springs pop out of the Asdon Martin. They say things like "Hey Look At Me" and "How's My Driving? Call 1-800-GET BENT"

  • Stealthily
The Asdon Martin goes bwommmmmmmm and shimmers into near-invisibility as you turn on the optical camouflage. Finding the door is going to be tricky.

You turn on the settings for "oil slicks", "more oil slicks", and "constantly just dripping oil". You start to hear a steady glip blip glip sound.

  • Recklessly
You activate on the Asdon Martin's sirens (they sound like "FWOOP FWOOOOOOOOP!") and set the autopilot for a lot of weaving in and out of traffic and cutting people off. This is definitely going to incite some road rage.

  • Waterproofly
When you turn on "Underwater Mode", a snorkel mouthpiece gabloinks out of the Asdon Martin's steering wheel, followed by a sound like zweeeeeeeeeeeee-KRUNCH as a long pipe telescopes out of the hood of the car and smashes through the roof of your workshed.

Notes

  • Fuel level is reset to zero when ascending. Fuel level is NOT reset when swapping workshed items.
  • You can convert tradable food and booze in your inventory to fuel. Items purchased directly from NPC stores are excluded, as are items with a no-discard flag.
  • Fuel converted appears to be approximately equal to the number of adventures the consumable would have given.
  • Driving effects are mutually exclusive. You may extend or deactivate your current driving effect from the workshed interface.
  • Driving effects continue after swapping to a new shed item, but fuel based skills cannot be used until it is reinstalled.
