A furnace that burns fluid for power. It inherits its specifications from the electric furnace, instead of the steel furnace. I haven't decided whether that's the best thing: let me know in the comments. It will burn any fluid with a fluid_value; so it will not burn steam. It also has pipe connections for smelting recipes that take a fluid ingredient or have a fluid output. Vanilla does not include fluid with fluid_value, but the furnace will work with any mod that adds burnable fluids. If you need some, my Carbon mod adds fuel_value to vanilla fluids, additional fluids to burn, and a way to turn fuel items into burnable fluids.

Furnaces will pass fluid through to the next furnace, if the connections are aligned. The fuel input-output connections do not have blue arrows in alt mode; blue arrows are only seen on connections for recipe ingredients and results. See the picture above: those furnaces are all fed from the line going into the top furnace, which then shares its fluid fuel down the line.
