Without mods or other trickery, there are resupply ships. They need to be researched.
They are by default designs, rather powerful, mobile mining bases. I love them, most others seem to hate them. They need to deploy at a planet to become a resupply point. Usually you deploy at a fuel source, but it should be possible to deploy on anything if you just want to use previously mined fuel in the stores.
There is a good guide for them.
For me it feels so good to have them parked on fuel sources to fill up. When war comes, one or two head for mining spots in nice range of several enemy systems, and my battle fleets may wreck havoc with refueling sources nearby.
You misunderstand my question. You have to park a resupply ship at a source and send ships to them. I wanted to know if you can do it the other-way-round, I'e send a refuelling ship to them.
He did answer your question. Send the resupply ship to them then deploy on something so they can dock and refuel. Just make sure its full of fuel first if there is no fuel source to mine at the destination.
I know all that, he didn't and neither have you answered the question.
Navy's use fleet auxilleries that carry fuel and refuel ships at sea. That is what I want to know but I'm assuming it is not possible.
