Minecart with Furnace
dec: 343 hex: 157 bin: 101010111
Powered minecarts can be broken like any other minecart, by attacking it.
Powered minecarts are placed the same as other minecarts.
To move the minecart, face the direction you want it to move, use the fuel (coal or charcoal) on the minecart. Your fuel will be consumed once used. Each piece of fuel powers a minecart with furnace for 3 minutes. Adding another piece of fuel at any time increases the total range by another 3 minutes. In creative, the minecarts do not need to be powered with coal.
To change direction, press the use button while facing the needed direction. When a powered minecart runs out of fuel, it will not break. However, minecarts with furnace cannot push other carts around 180-degree hairpin turns.
A player in a cart adds significant weight, requiring more power to push. If too much stress is put on the minecart with furnace then it will stop. Clicking with use item button activates it again.
Minecarts with furnaces on a level track will cover 204m per minute (about 3.4 m/s), or 612m per piece of coal. Pushing multiple minecarts may decrease the range slightly, depending on collisions. Minecarts with furnaces can also pull up to four other minecarts behind them if the carts are first shunted together against a wall and then the furnace minecart is made to change direction.

|1.0.0||Each piece of coal powers a minecart with furnace for 3 minutes. Adding another piece of coal at any time increases the total range by another 3 minutes. Previously, any fuel added before the minecart stopped moving was wasted, as the duration would max out at three minutes regardless of how much coal was added. A full stack of 64 coal powers it for 192 minutes.|
|Minecarts with furnaces on a level track will cover 204 meters per minute.|
