The Oil Fabricator is used to generate Oil which can be pumped into Tanks, Refineries, or Combustion Engines. Each bucket of oil produced requires 49,600 EU. If you refine this Oil into Fuel, it will generate much more energy than its input requirements. An Oil Fabricator will convert 250 EU/t to Oil and will work rather fast on that Energy level, much faster than a Refinery.
Oil can also be used as an energy source. A Combustion Engine running on Fuel connected to an Engine Generator will give you enough Oil (~10 Buckets) to power the Engine itself and a fully running Refinery.
It does not require a Wooden Waterproof Pipe to output oil, though the pipe must be attached to the side of the oil fabricator for it to work. Alternatively it will pump Oil directly into a Tank if the tanks are placed on top of or placed adjacent to the oil fabricator (no pipes or engines needed).
While the Oil Fabricator will use up 250 EU/t if you let it, you will often need MUCH less than this to keep up with your engines. The table below shows the EU/t needed to keep up with combustion engines. Based on the table this means that a single Oil Fabricator can handle up to 217 Combustion Engines all running fuel.
