Abstract : This report provides the average per gallon bulk fuel receipt costs observed for four modes of receipt: pipeline, tank truck, rail car and barge. The most common modes of delivery of bulk fuels to military installations are pipeline and tank truck, and this study included six installations with both capabilities. The study found that, on average, the award of a contract to a vendor who supplies by tank truck will increase the cost of bulk fuel receipt processing by about $.00100 (100 mils) per gallon over the cost for receiving by pipeline. However that we can only be 50% confident that the actual added cost to change from pipeline the limited number of installations sampled and the sample variance observed means to tank truck is no more than 25% above (or below) 100 mils. It is recommended that additional installations be added to the data base in order to improve the level of statistical confidence.
