    An old thread on Ethomix -

    FBVHC info on fuel changes, and the additives tested and approved -
    Lessons learned from working with military vehicles, number 10 in a series. "Never tip the strange silver thing with hoses upside down over the toolbox. It will leak gunk."

    This is what we need to watch for in our aircraft and I suspect some specialist vehicles would suffer with this too.
