For Oil Refineries in buildcraft 2 – see this.
A refinery powered by eight combustion engines.
Oil Refineries are machines used to convert oil into gas. Oil will be pumped into the machine using waterproof pipes or be placed inside with buckets. Gasoline produced by the machine should be pumped out with a powered picket waterproof pipe. The conversion fee of oil to gas is 1:1, nonetheless considerably extra power (19x in BC2.2.14) could be extracted from gasoline so refining is very really helpful.
A refinery has three small inner tanks: the rear two are for oil and hold up to eight buckets; the entrance one is for gasoline (the output of the refinery) and holds as much as four buckets. Ocasionally you might discover water in the again tanks in case your pump has drawn in water. This can cease the refinery working, and it will have to be picked up and replaced wasting any saved fuel.
Merely connecting two tanks to the output of your pump, and placing one bucket of water into one tank and oil in the opposite will trigger unwanted water to be eliminated into the tank. Pump the oil from the oil tank into the refinery with a redstone engine and wooden waterproof pipe.
Breaking a refinery together with your fingers will destroy it. Use a stone pickaxe or higher to get it back.

Refineries use a whole lot of power, so it is probably best to supply it using Conductive Pipes. They require several Combustion Engines powering them at the identical time to run at an affordable charge.
Data on engines power production could be discovered on the Energy Quick Reference web page.
As a refinery is running, two small pistons on its left and proper will move up and down. The quicker they transfer, the quicker oil is being converted into gasoline. The pistons will likely be of various colours relying on the refinery’s speed and effeciency; pink being the slowest and green being the quickest setting.
