A trip between star systems could easily use up 500 units. How can I increase the maximum fuel capacity?

I don't think you can...but you can salvage fuel by scanning ship remains.

There is no way to increase the Normandy's fuel reserves in ME3. However if you travel around the map you might get a light ping when you hit a certain area (similar noise to when you approach a planet). Actively pinging in close proximity to this hidden planet will reveal a destroyed fuel depot which will give you a one time fuel refill of X amount of fuel. There's usually one in each system. However revisiting this destroyed depot will not refuel you.

WARNING: locating this hidden fuel depot may attract Reapers.

You CAN increase the fuel capacity by editing coalased.ini file.

Welcome to Arqade! This could be a decent answer (if probably limited to the PC version), but it lacks a great deal of necessary information to be a good useful answer. Namely, two things; where is the file located, and where within that .ini file is the value you must change (and to what?). Just telling us a thing is possible without saying how or under what conditions (PC only), is not a very good answer. – Trent Hawkins Sep 3 '14 at 7:39
