For eight hours on Nov. 7, customers in Germany will not be able to purchase fuel from Army and Air Force Exchange Service gas stations or use their fuel card at ESSO service stations due to a scheduled system outage.

The outage will be enforced between 5 a.m. and 1 p.m. Central European Time, AAFES officials announced Thursday. During the shutdown, AAFES also will not be able to issue or replace fuel ration cards, add money to fuel card accounts or process balance/ration inquiries.

The outage coincides with the end of daylight-saving time in the United States, when AAFES must reset computer mainframe system clocks to standard time and perform system maintenance and software upgrades, AAFES officials said.
