I just got my ship in SW: The Old Republic and I noticed that space missions have a fuel cost associated with them.

What does it actually mean? Do I need to buy fuel periodically? Where can I see how much fuel I have?

It's a measure of how far away you are from the location on the galaxy map (measured from whichever planet or station you're currently orbiting from).

It's a pretty negligible cost over-all, but if you want to run one space mission repeatedly, you can move to a nearby system to reduce the fuel cost each time.

It's the same principle that costs you credits in fuel whenever you fly from planet to planet.

Ahh, so the number is not how many units of fuel I'm gonna use, but how many credits I'm gonna pay to get there? That makes a lot more sense. Thanks. =) – Adam Lear Mar 29 '12 at 3:38
