    Yup .You can thump it, or run missions/events, or pvp for it. Gas is a family of resources. There's 4 types of gas, radine, methine, nitrine, octine. You only get 'raw' materials from doing these things. So before you can craft with them or progress your frame or sell them they have to be refined. Goes for all resources.

    Resources come in 3 Families.

    Mineral
    Gas
    Organic

    And in each family there are 3-4 different kinds of resources.
    And to use any resources you find you need to Refine them first.

    GAS = all those mentioned, 1000 octine + 1000 nitrine = 2000 gas

    1. Go to Map
    2. Press Tab
    3. Find the Gas you want
    4. Go to that general area it was listed in
    5. Use scan hammer
    6. Jumpjet up, follow glowy lines to the root of the resource vein where it is most dense
    7. Keep using Scan Hammer to find the epicenter of the vein
    8. Drop a Thumper, get the minerals
    9. Go to the Molecular Printer
    10. Do Raw Resource Refining I (under the Refine Tab and dont do Crystite Refining)
    11. Wait for it to finish
    12. Claim the finished resources
    You can now use those resources in crafting. Only refined resources can be used in crafting.

    Don't forget that you can buy the resources that you are short of on the market (alt m). - hunt around and you will probably find some large quantities of low grade gas going cheap.

    And of course you can sell your unwanted resources to raise the cash.

    You have to click the icon for "Gas" when you go to buy the upgrade. This allows you to select what you want to use.

    it just doesn't work.
    i refined methine nitrine radine and octine with my raw resource refining III and it still says 247
    i refined a combined 2000 units, give or take a dozen.
