I have started several games and I'm slowing beginning to understand this game but I can never get my refueling ships to work. Can someone please tell me how they work and why it is so hard to figure them out? I send then to gas clouds but the deploy option never comes up. Why do you need to deploy them in the first place?

The resupply ships? Select them, find gas giant in place you want to use as refuelling point and right click -> deploy. The ship now acts as refuelling point until undeployed. Works wonders in longer distance warfare, where you want to hit deep in to enemy systems. Beware, AI seems to be quite aware of resupply ships and will usually try to take them out if possible.
Haven't tried them on gas clouds yet, but gas giants should work.

What confuses me is that in one game I was able to deploy at a gas cloud now I can't.

I actually came up with same situation, and with little inspection, understood the problem: Some gas clouds just don't have "gas". Gas clouds that can be mined should show the gas-resource icon on info screen when you mouse over them on galaxy map.

It's a bug. Look at the patch notes for the latest beta.

Hadn't noticed that, thanks for correction. Haven't really looked through the bug and patch lists.
