Fuel (燃料, Nenryō?) is an item from Final Fantasy VIII used on the world map to power rental cars, as well as an APC during a segment where the player is given one to drive. When purchased from vendors, it costs 3,000 gil per unit (no actual measurement is given). Fuel is automatically consumed after a car has traveled a certain distance, and vehicles will start with a full tank of fuel.
If a car runs out of fuel and the player does not have any units left in the inventory, the car will move at a significantly slower speed. This must be heeded carefully, as the player cannot rent another car until the current one is returned to the correct city/town, or until the APC is driven to the Missile Base as part of the story.
