Abstract : Conclusions: (a) The M-127 Fuel Transporter Adapter Kit provides a satisfactory means of converting the M-127 cargo trailer into a fuel transporter for the explicit purpose of transferring fuel from the AAFS to the TAFDS or any other single dispensing point. (b) The kit is unsatisfactory for transporting partial loads of fuel as would be encountered if the unit were used to dispense fuel at a series of locations. (c) The 3,000-gallon tank is satisfactory for use as a short term ground container. (d) All allowances of the subject item should be held by the Bulk Fuel Companies (T/E M-3333) at the rate of 15 kits per unit. Recommendations: The M-127 Fuel Transporter Adapter Kits should be procured in sufficient quantities to provide an allowance of 15 kits per Bulk Fuel Company. (Author)
