I'm wondering what happens if you run out of fuel between systems in ME3?

I think that in the second one, you just burnt your minerals, but having no minerals in ME3, what happens?

Also, I dont seem to find any refuel station... so how can I get fuel?

fyi there are refueling stations scattered at various locations in the galaxy – l I Mar 9 '12 at 1:05
Thank you for that one. I guess I'll find them later. – Fredy31 Mar 9 '12 at 1:06
I usually visited the Krogan DMZ cluster, it has a refueling station in the very first solar-system. – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Aug 6 '12 at 22:06
Visiting the Citadel also refuels your ship for free, IIRC. – Adeese Aug 7 '12 at 2:38

When you run out of fuel, your ship is automatically forced into the system containing the Mass Relay and you will not be able to explore outside of it until you refuel.
