This was just a question that had been brought up to a group that I am in. Is the military using more fuel efficiant vehicles now?

Nope, not even close.

No joke!... If I remember right an M1A1 takes 11 gallons to start!

At least maybe even more if the pack is worn out!

They tried to field a re-engined hybrid HEMTT (a type of tactical all-terrain transport truck) in Germany last year. It was impressive because it got something like 7 miles to the gallon! I'm not sure how the vehicle worked out, but if the army isn't committed to it heart and mind, they are at least paying lip service to the concept.

I think it`s amusing. The UK are looking at "Greener" tanks................so the tube at the back emits Eco friendlier emmisions, whilst the tube at the  front delivers death and destruction. lol

The last I heard, the Army is primarily running JP-8 instead of diesel in many vehicles in the field.

No, but we are dropping enviornmentally friendly bombs.  They don't spread body parts and other bio waste as far. 


My last patrol car at the Navy Base in MS was a flex fuel Tahoe.  I could probably shove a whole bunch of corn in the tank and drive around.  I just never tried. 


If I have offended anyone, so be it.
