    When Sentinel awakens Lennox tells Mearing "Energon, these guys run on it and Sentinel here is out of it."
    As far as I recall they haven't harvested any sort energon from Earth yet so wouldn't those Autobots on earth also be low on energon? Where are they getting it from?

    i think its safe to assume that "energon" is synthesized by the transformers bodies. Basically they take in other forms of energy like solar, electric, etc and their bodies synthesize it into useable energon. Waste is then let off as heat or used in other parts of their body to power weapons and such.

    I think the energon replenishes itself like a natural energy source. But after a while the body stops replenishing it. In sentinels case he probably went into stasis lock and his body stopped using energy. Therefore his levels became faint.

    I have two observations about that:

    1 - Transformers can survive a while without Energon, but after a while ["a while" meaning "hundrends and hundrends of years"], they start to "die", their body starts to literally FALL APART [Jetfire].

    2 - I think a "copycat" of Energon can be manufactured [weaker than "True" Energon, but enough to keep them alive], like Megatron seemingly did to feed his Hatchlings in DOTM.

    I dont think its possible to just create energy out of nothing, so I think they do require "eating" to function. Megatron even "feeds" his hatchlings in africa.

    I believe statis lock occurs when energon levels are so low the body turns off in order to preserve spark. Only way out is if someone else intervenes...otherwise you'll be destined to be in statis forever (ala sentinel prime and megatron)

    I never thought of that.

    All I know is that the Transformers need energon to survive, but it hasn't been said just how long they can survive without it.

    But it's safe to theorize they use electricity or solar energy, I like that.

    Anyone remember watching G1? Megs harvested/made Energon from earth's sources of energy, like hydroelectric dams and that.

    You eat and your body uses the nutrients to maintain itself. The Autobots need something to help replenish it unless they are like trees.

    and volcanos and storms and stuff. yeah i remember that. but they would put that stuff in energon cubes and the cubes converted it to energon for them.

    Their body obviously synthesizes it. I can only assume that the autobots use their vehicles gasoline fuel sources like food. Or who knows maybe they all have extension cords coming out of their asses and they just plug in to charge up.

    SHE lives (hence my sig saying I'm a woman)
    it's not where I live now it's where I used to live.
    let me put it this way I taught at the high school there and I was hit 3 times in two years, once was when I was 6 months pregnant with my son and I got hit in my stomach.(don't worry baby was fine he's 6 years old now) the last time I was trying to stop one student from killing another (literally she did time in juvie for attempted murder)
    the city is usually featured on cops every Saturday night (Rialto, CA, east LA/San Bernardino area) and that's also why I don't live there anymore
