The invention relates to a method for operating a fuel cell system, whereby, in order to prevent a shortfall in fuel supply to a fuel cell in a starting phase, a larger amount of fuel is dosed into an anode-side volume of the fuel cell system than the amount corresponding to that required to produce the necessary electrical power. A shortfall in fuel supply to a fuel cell can thus be avoided and a start period for the fuel cell system reduced, if, on starting, the amount of fuel in the fuel cell system is dosed taking into account an amount of fuel stored in the fuel cell system.
