Looking where to buy Fuel Cells
Hey folks, just wondered if any of you guys could point me to the zone/sector where I can buy Fuel Cells? I spotted the post about the jump drive taking longer to spool up if no fuel cells are not available. I don't mind that really, but thought it best of there were some in the cargo bay hehe. Thanks :)

every major zone has a place to buy them, the actual station looks kinda like a gate, a round looking ring thing with buildings above and below, its hard to describe but you'll know it when you see it. Also you can just call the captain of the ship you want refueled, and tell him to refuel.

It's a little odd tho, to manualy buy the only place I've seen is DeVries, if you tell him to refuel the jump drive in the other areas he just goes and does it, I'm not sure that it costs anything.

There are very few cell recharge facilities in the universe...

There's one in DeVries - Glaring Truth - Fervid Corona

In Albion theres one in Far Out - Gemstone Manufacture, and one in Lookout Alpha -Wrecksville.

Both are PMC owned, so if the plot has ruined your rep with them, the one in DeVries is your only bet.

Eventually you'll find two in Omicron Lyrae which are also friendly.

Thanks guys. Didn't realise you could order the pilot to refuel.

Well I've found the station in Far Out - Gemstones Manufacture.. even the bit of the station thats labeled a Filling Station.. and can't find the command for the pilot to refuel. There is a Cell Specialist on the nearby docking platform (the icon that looks like a missile).

try: call pilot and click his/her pic on the view screen
Note: I have only ever done it by removing ship from squad, travel to where i want ship to get to, resquad, wait for the "not enough fuel" click pic-buy fuel... and only ever had ship turn up with actual fuel in cargohold once... this buy fuel when I want sounds promicing, cant test as my caps are stuck at shadyvault
good luck %)

Tell them to not use jump fuel and just wait for them, you can fuel them up when they finally arrive in DeVries

Here is how to buy them:
Download "Ignore fuel cells" mod from the nexus site.

select trade/fuel cells/ look for devries

Ship will just go there and buy them

Sometimes they jump straight away (even without fuel) sometimes they take a while for the first jump.

Oh my.. I.. wait what? Hmm.. maybe I should wait till he actually runs out of fuel. I'm always careful and feel the need to put a bit in the tank anyway hehe.. er. right. I'll try the above, and thanks for your replies. :)

so DeVries is only place you can actualy trade/buy fuel cells then?
i have had caps go to the stations and start doing a dance after telling them to buy the fuel only to have the game crash
once in 1.16 ship turned up with 2400 fuel cells
ai ships are always all over the stations but never seen anyof them collect any fuel, guess it be bust
next stop devries.. :) joy

is there any normal way to fuel up CAP ships without pointing face on the monitor ?
this is hell when there are many caps following and no way to get them fueled ready in advance..

It look like a X3 trade equipmente dock thingy

looks like its broke for now (for some at least) although i have had a ship fuel up fully..once..even the ai ships try to fuel but fail must be slowing the econ down if they trying to fuel every jump and fail.

as for a "get some damn fuel NOW!" button... I dont see one sry, even if it was there the chances are it would fail anyway.

No it work just fine, you need to click their portrait that flash yellow when they q.q for fuel...
