Warfighters, have you wondered if you can use biodiesel blends in your tactical vehicles? Well, wonder no more because the answer is no.

AR 70-12, Fuels and Lubricants Standardization Policy for Equipment Design, Operation, and Logistics Support (Nov 15), states that biodiesel blends are not authorized for use in combat/tactical systems.

In fact, AR 70-12 requires that all Army vehicles be designed to use JP-8 or F-24 fuel. For more info, contact the DEVCOM Ground Vehicle System Center (GVSC) Fuels and Lubricants Branch at:
