Hm, I thought "refuel here" was possible. I will double-check that.
Damn I finally won one vs Erik (I am great got me some chocolate cake) hehe
The "refuel here" *should* be possible, although the command is sometimes hard to get at. For military ships or fleets it should become available through the ctrl-right-click context menu, where there should appear "refuel at blah mining station", with the ship(s)/fleet to refuel selected, and the right-click on the fuel source, of course. Note, that the standard right-click command will default to something like 'patrol' or 'escort', depending on what is right-clicked.
The problems I can imagine with ctrl-right-click: You have to hit the refueling source, which can be difficult to impossible when there are lots of other ships at the target (refueling, or in the case of space ports, being built). I can imagine (never checked thoroughly) that at least some surplus fuel must be present at the potential fuel source.
For anyone trying to issue the "refuel at..." command it is a good idea to check beforehand what amount of free, unreserved fuel is available by looking at the resource in the cargo hold of the mining station or planet. Only that which isn't tied up as 'reserved' will be available.
