AR 70-12, Fuels and Lubricants (May 22), has been updated. It replaces the previous title, Fuels and Lubricants Standardization Policy for Equipment Design, Operation, and Logistics Support (Nov 15).

This regulation is important because it tells the user the order of precedence for fuels that Army units can use in different engine types when they can’t get the required JP-8 (OCONUS) or F-24 (CONUS).
