Starfield: Where to Buy Lubricant

You can buy lubricant at any general store in Starfield. You can search their resource section for a list of organic, inorganic, and manufactured materials the vendor sells.

Below are a few examples of general stores in Starfield:

  • Jemison Mercantile in Spaceport, Jemison, Alpha Centauri.

The average lubricant price is around 15-17 credits. You will typically see about six to eight in stock at one time. Every merchant has different quantities and prices that fluctuate daily, and you can change this by waiting 24 hours on a chair or bench. Doing this refreshes shop stocks, allowing you to find new items and prices.

Why Can’t I Find Lubricant?

Since every store’s resources refresh daily, there’s a chance you won’t find any lubricant when you check your first shop. If this happens, you have two options: hop to another store or wait a full day before rechecking the list.


To purchase large quantities of lubricant, buy every one in stock before waiting 24 hours. There’s a chance lubricant will appear in the refreshed resource list!
