As I remember the CENG had sprayer plates for JP-5 as well as over load plates in cause of war time,I never burned NSFO and was glad not to, that stuff was nasty!

DFM =Diesel Fuel Marine

Comment by Rob Sitze on July 26, 2013 at 7:04pm

We actually used DFM, also called F76 if I recall.  We could use JP5 but that was jet fuel on the carrier I served on.

I was one 2 ships during the ND conversion.  In fact, the second one (USS MITSCHER DDG-35) was the only ship in the Navy that converted to ND and had to convert back to NSFO.  We couldn't burn ND!!!
