Mass increase at relativistic speeds

The mass of a spacecraft increases to infinity as the craft approaches the speed of light, so it would require an infinite amount of energy to make it accelerate any faster. Question? Wouldn't the amount of fuel in the craft also increase to infinity? This would provide the energy necessary to keep going faster....??
