Red Rocket is the name of a franchise of refueling stations for pre-Great War automobiles. They can be encountered all across the Capital Wasteland. They are landmarks for many pre-War rest areas and garages throughout the wastes and can also be found near pre-War suburban settlements such as Springvale.
At the base of a fueling station, where the gas pumps would be on an ordinary station, a dirty sign is visible that appears to say "Petroleum spirit. Highly flammable."
Red Rocket refueling stations seem to appear next to almost every mechanic's workshop in the Capital Wasteland.
The Children of Atom in Megaton has a 'Red Rocket' rocket on top of their church, either taken from one of the refueling stations or taken from the Springvale Elementary playground.
There are usually one or two trash bins and/or Nuka-Cola vending machines to be found in the vicinity.
The station's apparatus is a prime example of Raygun Gothic architecture.
Mini Red Rockets can be seen at playgrounds.
After The Waters of Life quest several Enclave scouting parties will set up shop near Red Rocket stations.
Red Rocket will be a company in Fallout 4; the Sole Survivor's dog companion is first encountered at one of their stations, and a board sign is seen in the .
