The Eternal Fuel Dynamo is the second Ship Parts obtained in Pikmin. This part is mandatory, meaning to finish the game you must collect it. It is possible to skip this piece, but it's right in your face and pretty much impossible to miss when you enter The Forest of Hope. The Eternal Fuel Dynamo is what provides Captain Olimar's S.S. Dolphin with fuel, and as the word "eternal" suggests, it provides an infinite amount of power for intergalactic space midget travel!
The Eternal Fuel Dynamo is likely the easiest part to get, after the engine, of course, making it a literal joke getting this thing. As soon as you land, grab your Pikmin and order them to take down the Gates (Pikmin). Once the gate is down go and kill the nearby Red Bulborb. This is probably the hardest part, but even then, it's still simple. Killing the Bulborb with as few Pikmin as you have at this point will be a bit of a challenge. If you want to be careful, you can grow some more, but the most effective strategy is by sneaking behind the enemy in question and quite literally bum rushing them. Once that's out of the way, head Northeast and kill the two Dwarf Red Bulborb, and there is your golden volatile death battery waiting for you.
