Eternal Fuel Dynamo
The Eternal Fuel Dynamo is a mandatory ship part in Pikmin, typically the second to be recovered. It is in The Forest of Hope and is surrounded by two Dwarf Red Bulborbs and a Red Bulborb, which Olimar can just sneak past, making it an easy part to obtain. The Eternal Fuel Dynamo provides Captain Olimar with infinite amounts of energy, so he doesn't have to use candles in order to conserve fuel. When collected, the part installs itself inside the ship, at the entry hatch's level. This is hard to see unless the ship is busted open, and becomes especially harder to see after collecting the Anti-Dioxin Filter.
Collecting the part
Destroy the white gate at the landing site and kill the Red Bulborb. Go northeast and kill the two Dwarf Red Bulborbs near the part. Have 40 Pikmin carry the part back. There should not be any problems finding it. When speed running, it is not necessary to kill the Bulborb, but is advisable for new players, or if you have low amounts of Pikmin. Beginning on day 5, there will be a second Bulborb in the area, which should be killed if the part hasn’t been collected yet.
“Why, it's the Eternal Fuel Dynamo!
It has an unlimited energy supply! I won't have to worry about saving electricity anymore! This will make my fight for survival a bit easier...
This should light things up. No more candles for me!”
