So uh, what does the Covert Jump Portal Generator use for fuel and how much does it use? The item description only shows a capacitor cost - is this it, or does it also need fuel like a regular Jump Portal Generator?

Assuming it does need fuel - how much, and what! Because if it's Strontium Clathrates x500, then there's nowhere near enough space to hold enough for one portal in the cargohold of, for example, a Widow: 550m3 cargo, and even with Jump Portal Generation 5 you'd still need 750m3 for one portal.

If it doesn't need fuel... Okay, that's great! Doesn't that make it a cheap way to move it around camps etc though, or does opening a portal still use a regular jump's worth of Nitrogen Isotopes? Either way you'd only ever need to train Jump Portal Generation to 1 in this case.

I've never used a jump- or jump portal-capable ship before so bear with me. :)

it uses a rediculous amount of racial isotopes.

I think it may have been changed but initially the Jump Portal Generation skill reduced the stront cost by X per level (50 i think?) which applied to titans of course but had no impact on Covert Jump Portal fuel costs, so if you were going to use the jump portal you only needed the skill at rank 1. I believe the skill has since been changed to a percentage reduction in fuel cost, no idea though.
