I, for one, would love to read a blog or something with the behind-the-scenes process that 148 went through in their redesign.
I can't speak for 148, but I would assume removing the fuel ground pickup capability was a necessary sacrifice in order to make the redesign work at all. It was probably either too much additional weight and/or did not integrate with the new hopper/shooter design. It doesn't seem like something that any fuel-shooting team would deem not worth having if they had an option to keep it with no consequences.
