Ships and SRVs have different engines and different fuel requirements.
There are three formulae for crafting SRV fuel, each permitting greater range than the one preceding:
- sulphur + phosophorus
- sulphur + phosophorus + arsenic + mercury
- sulphur + arsenic + mercury + technetium
From this we can conclude that the SRV engine is distantly related to a 4-stroke side-valved engine, which can be persuaded to run on any liquid that has any pretence to volatility from margarine to Chanel No. 5. Both engine types pollute any atmosphere in equal measure.
