I ran out of fuel once in my first two days. Once I realized that this game would not only let you die, but would actually force you to kill yourself from ignorance, I fell in love with it. I haven't stopped playing since.
But before I blew myself up, I saw in the systems panel that you could turn on a beacon and it made me think... if only some nice person could come by to help me refuel, then I wouldn't have to roleplay dying which hurts even in a fully covered sidewinder! So Yeah, short story long, if the call is very far with lots of data at stake, or very near with all their worldly possessions in their brand new hauler, I will be available for a fuel rat run to the rescue.
Always happy to help fellow explorers.
Count me in.

I'm in, happily, though I'll probably be in the bubble for the next few weeks. (CMDR Kuroshio)

Once I'm back out exploring again, I'll certainly equip my ship with the requisite parts. I think it should be added to the standard list
This looks interesting....
Speed run out to help, explore on the way back, nice.
Not sure how relevant it is, as most explorers seem to be very concious of their fuel levels. I know I am.
Has anyone actually been stuck while exploring for the lack of fuel.
"Adventure is just bad planning."
There's a section of non-scoopables about 2KLY out from Sol towards the Trifid nebula that caught me out. It goes on for a long time and you need to keep stopping off from the navigated route to manually look for a suitable scoopable star.
Sign me up. Might have a Rapid Response Conda by time anyone needs some fuel.
Its a small world, I expect someone will be close enough most of the time. Its so small, I got annoyed by some idiot called Surley_Badger tagging a big bunch of NS that I was after just a few days ago
