After loading fuel oil at Bayonne, N.J., the tanker sailed for Europe on 23 May, reaching Horta, Azores, on 31 May and continuing on to Brest on 5 June. At both ports she refueled American warships, and then returned to New York on 22 June. Hoven sailed to Port Arthur for fuel oil and from 22 July to 9 August transited the Atlantic to Brest. She returned to New York on 31 August and decommissioned there 8 September 1919. Hoven was delivered to the USSB the day she decommissioned. Hoven was sold to Beacon Oil Co., Boston, Mass., in 1927 and renamed Beacon Hill.
