TFLRF staff provided technical support to an in-progress non-tactical vehicle JP-8 fuel demonstration program. The fleets had been operating on JP-8 fuel at two U.S. Army installations in Korea for seven months. The fuel conversion plan and fleet test parameters were designed and coordinated by the transportation officer of the 19th Theatre Area Army Command G-4. Therefore, the TFLRF teams main objectives were to evaluate the on-going JP-8 conversion demonstration and assess the feasibility of using JP-8 fuel in lieu of diesel fuel in Korean-manufactured NTVs using the data and information available at the test sites. The data revealed that the Korean-manufactured NTVs operated on JP-8 fuel for a period of 12 months and accumulated in excess of one million kilometers without experiencing fuel-related operational problems.
