So, I just started my first game of x-com. I sent an interceptor pretty far out, until it automatically returned back to base for fuel. Except instead of getting back to the base it just stopped at 0% fuel right next to the base.

Is this a bug? I've tried looking this up, but have failed. If it's not a bug, is there any way to refuel it? or even just destroy it, since having to click twice on the base to select it is mildly annoying.

Your ships can fly about on 0% fuel, as fuel is mainly used by the game to control when to force the interceptor to return home to base. Of course, what is strange that the interceptor just stopped in mid-air.

Have you tried to issue any orders to interceptor?
