During the evacuation Spitfire Squadrons were first commited agin the Jerries... did any of the Squadrons land in France to refuel?

No. The Spitfires were deemed too demanding with regard to ground maintenance and so were not allowed to land. The RAF would not risk them being overrun by the enemy.
