Limpets controlled by this module can transfer fuel to a targeted ship in 1 ton increments each. The limpet is consumed in this process. Fuel is taken from the firing ships main tank and sent to the targeted ship via the limpet.
— In-game Description
The Fuel Transfer Limpet Controller is a type of Limpet Controller module that can program limpets to transfer quantities of fuel from a ship's Fuel Tank to the Fuel Tank of a targeted ship. This is most useful in refueling ships that do not have a Fuel Scoop installed or lack sufficient fuel to jump to scoopable star.
Fuel Transfer Limpets allow pilots to exchange fuel between themselves in situations where access to refueling is limited or nonexistent. The most common application is in the Support role made famous by the Fuel Rats, in which one pilot provides aid to another in need to prevent the loss of their ship.
In Wings, one member can be designated as a dedicated fuel carrier and fly a large ship with multiple reserve Fuel Tanks. The fuel carrier can keep the other members fueled and thus allow them to specialize for combat or other roles without setting aside internal compartments for a Fuel Scoop or reserve Fuel Tank themselves. This can extend the Wing's effective travel range and the activity time.

The following modifications can be applied to this module by Engineers to enhance its abilities:
- Limpets are stored in the ship's cargo hold, and need to be manually restocked under the Restock/Repair services menu at stations.
