Fuel was used to power the shuttles that brought the colonists from the ships to the surface of Pern.

Pilot Kenjo Fusaiyuki tried to waste as little fuel as possible during the shuttle drops. When Sallah Telgar discovered he was doing so, she did as well. Later, Kenjo stashed the extra fuel in caves, some in Landing, some brought to his stake at Honshu. He built himself a small plane and used the fuel to power it. Paul Benden, Emily Boll and Zi Ongola were aware of his stash and hoped Avril Bitra wouldn't find it.

When Thread started falling, Kenjo took the Mariposa high enough into the atmosphere to study it. He used the fuel that he had stored in Landing.
