Is there lots of potential fuel on Saturn's moon, Titan due to its liquid methane seas?

Yes there is... We'd still need to supply an oxidizer to burn it with, but if we could take on some of the methane/ethane there, that's a lot less mass we'd need to take with us.

because there is not lots of liquid oxidizer there.
A fuel is only useful when an oxidizer is combined with it so that it "burns" in order to release energy. For example oil won't burn if it is cut off from oxygen. Neither will wood. That is one of the ways firefighters extinguish a blaze: they cover the fuel with foam to cut off the supply of oxygen to it.

Nothing we can use. There's no way to get it here, or to find the oxygen needed to burn it

Absolutely..the same goes for many planets and asteroids. They are going to be mining the moon soon and as technology allows they will move further into space and destroy as many objects as possible to advance their greed so humans can continue to pollute this planet until its eventually unlivable.
