A field demonstration was conducted at Ft. Bliss, TX, to determine the feasibility of using JP-8 fuel MIL-T-83133C, NATO Code F-34 in U.S. Army ground combattactical vehicles and equipment VE in lieu of DF-2 diesel fuel. The demonstration was conducted during the period 1 February 1989 through 30 September 1991. The results of the demonstration for the period 1 February 1989 through 31 July 1990 were reported in Interim Report BFLRF No. 264, entitled Field Demonstration of Aviation Turbine Fuel, MIL-T-83133C, Grade JP-8 NATO code F-34 at FT. Bliss, TX. After 31 July 1990, Operation Desert ShieldStorm resulted in the deployment to the Middle East of over 2,000 of the initial 2,800 plus VE participating in the demonstration at Ft. Bliss, leaving approximately 750 VE for the remaining demonstration interval through 30 September 1991. There was no significant return of VE to Ft. Bliss by the end of the program. However, by that time, it was apparent that initial results reported in Interim Report BFLRF No. 264 were verified during the remainder of the demonstration.
