    was going through some old army documents that i no longer need or want (currently in the process of destroying all my ex army documents etc etc), and found information on the Su-25 and it stated that the aircraft was very rugged and can use rough airfields and its very easy to service and cheap to maintain to which i think everyone knows, but the next bit surprised that it stated that if needed can be run on all types of fuel including diesel, has anyone else heard of this? the source was a military document.

    Yes.

    Their tanks were the same.

    Obviously if you mix different fuels like petrol and diesel and kerosene and methanol and benzine it is not going to get the best fuel economy, but a flight of Su-25s operating in Europe could land on a road near a petrol station and fuel up with almost anything they had... not LPG of course...

    Average rig truck can fill 1000l up and no it doesn't take hours. It takes 5-10mins.

    You could take the pipes from four different pumps clustered together and use them at once.

    The diesel pumps at our stations have a turbo button for trucks to pump at higher rates....
