Mechanics

The minecart with furnace accepts coal or charcoal for smelting. Fuel can be added by right-clicking on it while holding coal/charcoal. Doing this will cause it to travel along a rail, in the direction a player was facing when they added the fuel. As it moves along the rail, it will push any other minecarts along in front of it. Right-clicking it again will change its direction. It can travel along a rail for 3 minutes for each piece of coal/charcoal inside.

When destroyed, it will give back a minecart and a furnace separately. However, any fuel that was still left inside, will be lost.

It cannot be used to cook food or smelt ore, and players cannot ride in it.
