So fuel cells help ships hold more fuel so they go further. What do fuel cells do for bases? Increase storage to refuel fleets? Do you even need a fuel cell on a base over a planet?

Fuel on bases is mostly used for their weapons, and sometimes their shields when they are attacked.
You could probably only use collectors, but they are less efficient than a reactor if you need a nice overload of power.

Um ok but where do fuel cells come in here? Are they needed at all on bases if fuel is stored in cargo?

You need only one fuel cell (as tank) if you have a cargo full with Caslon or Hydrogen.

Ok so no need to ever put more than one fuel cell on a base then?

I think you other thread has more than enough explanation on the subject by now. ;)

It did clear up his last question though - Ships that dock refuel from the cargo bay storage of Caslon and Hydrogen, not from the base's fuel cells. :)

If the stored amounts are low though, you'll still have some of that fuel reserved for the base though.
