In my last play through I was able to store all my liquids in vehicle tanks that were installed in my base and use them to craft food from anywhere attached to the base. In my latest game it dosn’t seem to be working anymore. So was the fact I could before a bug or is the fact I can’t anymore one.
I’m not entirely sure, but if you attach a faucet, you should be able to use the clean water tanks at least. I’m not sure about the non-clean water, and other fluids are probably right out. I think that not being able to use other liquids via faucets is a bug, but I’m not sure if/when it will get fixed.
No, it wasn’t through the faucet I was able to use my sugar beet syrup from a tank about 12 squares away to make deluxe oatmeal or bleach to make superglue. Clean water is the only thing that comes out of the faucet, and you can always craft clean water from a normal water tank no matter how far away from you as long as its the same vehicle as far as I know.
