  • If a minecart with a Coal Engine is mining coal, it will refill its fuel slot with coal if there is space available.
  • The Solar Engine can only run during the day while it has a clear view of the sky. Rain or snow do not affect their ability to work. During the night or while underground, however, the minecart will need a coal engine as a power source.
