The Combustion Engine is the highest tier of buildcraft engine. It can convert oil or fuel into MJ at a rate of 3MJ/t and 6MJ/t respectively, making it the most powerful of the three buildcraft engines. However, unlike engines from the lower tiers a combustion engine requires water to maintain a safe temperature and will continuously drain its internal water tank once it reaches the maximum safe operating temperature.
Combustion engines provide enough power to draw full stacks when used on a Wooden Pipe and move a Quarry without delays between each action.
In versions of buildcraft prior to 4.1.0, combustion engines were also able to convert lava into MJ at a rate of 1MJ/t.
They can sometimes be problematic, multiple users have reported issues getting theirs to work properly. I thought I'd do a quick troubleshooting tutorial to help out people that might be having issues.
