What happens when your all electric truck carrying troops between bases starts to take mortar fire and it's lithium battery decides so spontaneously burst into flames? These sorts of poorly thought out touchy feely rules are the kind of crap that will literally get soldiers killed.

Difference is that you can have self sealing diesel tanks on most vehicles and they won't blow up or conflugrate or do anything but leak and reseal when punctured. Lithium batteries however.... Remember those tanks which were called "Tommy cookers"? We'd be going back to the bad old days. Not to mention energy density issues. Currently lithium batteries are not suited to military use.

@Michael gas tanks don't blow up from being shot that's just a myth

Yeah no. I get it you’re all freaking over emissions but I’m not risking our troops by putting non-essential requirements into their equipment. If vehicle can carry a little more and/or move just a hare faster by doubling its emissions that’s fine by me. Because that payload could be a wounded marine and the golden hour is a hard rule you never want to exceed.

Actually the US navy has made strides to use bio fuels where they can. This is not just to develop the industry and be all green but also to ensure energy security in future large wars. Multiple sources = redundancy. Renewable energy also often means energy security.

Sorry, no. The USN was ORDERED to pursue it by Obama's staff. Biofuels are highly inefficient as they tend to gunk up engines and are prohibitively expensive. Domestic sources of energy are more than enough for military needs. ROI on biofuel coupled with opportunity cost and it becomes a painfully obvious giveaway to farmers and entrepreneurial contractors.
