Creosote Oil is a type of liquid added by the mod Railcraft. It is a byproduct of smelting wood or Coal in a Coke Oven, or, with Extra Bees installed, it can be obtained from Tar Combs. It can be burnt as fuel or used to make Wooden Ties (Railcraft). It can be pumped out of the Coke Oven with Wooden Waterproof Pipe, Liquiducts, or Fluid Pipes and stored in tanks. This is recommended as Creosote Oil can fill up a Coke Oven's internal storage very quickly, once it fills the oven will stop producing Coal/Charcoal.
As an Energy Source Edit
Although at first it appears to be a useless byproduct, Creosote Oil can be used to generate MJ or EU. This is especially useful when making Coal Coke in a Coke Oven - doing so not only uses no energy input whatsoever, but also yields this oil which can be converted into more energy. The only downside of this is the "cooking time" of a Coke Oven (3 minutes), necessitating a large array of Coke Ovens to process wood.
