More Money Coming for FBCF?

Some readers will be able to make more of this earkmark notice than me. It appears that a member of the House of Representatives is trying to get $5 million to OSD Research, Development Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) to help advance thinking and methodologies related to the Fully Burdened Cost of Fuel (FBCF). The reference to combat vehicles certainly makes it appear that this money may be designed to help the Joint Lightweight Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) folks (or others) do the analysis they're supposed to be doing related to more fully weighting energy factors in this program.

For more context, here's a recent post on JLTV and the FBCF.
