DoD fuel consumption varies from year to year in response to changes in mission and the tempo of operations. DoD may consume upwards of 1% of the petroleum products refined in the U.S. annually. The majority of DoD¿s bulk fuel purchases are for jet fuel, which has ranged as high as 101 million barrels annually in the past decade. The U.S. refining industry has been supplying 50% of DoD¿s jet fuel. Contents of this report: (1) Background; (2) Fuel Purchases: DoD Fuel Cost vs. Commercial Fuel Price; (3) Refining, Suppliers, and the Crude Oil Supply: Crude Oil Supply; Refining; Sulfur Reg¿s.;

The Nat. Renewable Energy Lab. (NREL) provided technical assistance to the Philippines in the area of biodiesel property testing and utilization. Three fuel samples were provided to NREL from the Philippines. These fuel samples were an unadditized diesel fuel, an additized diesel fuel, and a coconut derived biodiesel (coconut methylester or CME) fuel. Results from the fuel property testing show that the unadditized diesel fuel, the additized diesel fuel, and the CME samples met the Philippine Nat. Standards for diesel fuel quality. The 1% and 5% blends of CME in the diesel fuels also met the c

The DoD relies heavily on petroleum-based fuel to sustain its forward-deployed locations -- particularly those that are not connected to local power grids. While weapon platforms require large amounts of fuel, the single largest battlefield fuel consumer is generators, which provide power for activities such as cooling, heating, and lighting. Transporting fuel to forward-deployed locations presents a logistics burden and risk, including exposing fuel truck convoys to attack. This report addresses DoD's: (1) efforts to reduce fuel demand at forward-deployed locations; and (2) approach to managi

The procurement and preparation of fuel for nuclear power reactors, followed by its recovery, processing and management subsequent to reactor discharge, are frequently referred to as the nuclear fuel cycle. The facilities associated with these activities have an extensive and well-documented safety record accumulated over the past 50 years by technical experts and safety authorities. This third edition of The Safety of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle presents an up-to-date analysis of the safety aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle.

The USAF is the largest energy consumer in the DoD. In conjunction with the Presżs. mandate to reduce dependency on foreign oil and in an effort to stem fuel exp., the USAF estab. an alternative energy program focused on increased conservation and the devżt. of new, domestic sources of fuel. This report examines biologically produced fuel alternatives and their ability to meet USAF jet fuel requirements by the year 2025. It examines ethanol, terrestrial produced biodiesel, algae oil and biobutanol and each fuelżs ability to meet JP-8 fuel standards while achieving compatibility with USAF ai

Studies show that cars use significantly more fuel per kilometre than suggested by official test ratings. This publication presents an analysis of the fuel efficiency gap and examines technologies available that could reduce that gap and improve fuel economy. It examines such areas as engine and transmission technologies, hybrid technologies, tyre inflation and technology, lubricants, and fuel-saving driver support devices.  Together, these technologies could improve average on-road fuel economy by 10% or more at low or modest cost.  Policies that could be used to encourage uptake of these
