History

Donkey Kong Country

In the original Donkey Kong Country, Fuel Barrels were only found in one stage late in the game, Tanked Up Trouble. The Fuel Barrels were a very important part of this stage. It was needed to keep the transportation platform running so Donkey and Diddy Kong can reach the end of a stage.

The amount of fuel left in the platform was measured by a five red dots, with 5 being the maximum amount of fuel, which slowly decreased.

Donkey Kong Country 3

In Donkey Kong Country 3, the Fuel Barrels have been redesigned to be colored blue and are featured exclusively in the last stage Rocket Rush. Fuel barrels kept the Rocket Barrel flying so it would not plummet down and crash. The Rocket Barrel must be steered into a Fuel Barrel in order to obtain it's fuel.
