Coronavirus (COVID-19)

How we are working to keep our FOI Requests running during COVID-19

Misfuelling (3194_16)


For each of the Calendar Years 2014 and 2015:

  1. The total cost of fuelling police vehicles.
  1. The number of incidents of filling a police vehicle with the incorrect type of fuel.
  1. The repair cost for incidents involved in Question 2.


Please note, data for question 1 (total cost of fuelling) is held in Financial rather than Calendar Year. Therefore so as to provide comparable data, information for questions 2 and 3 has also been supplied in this format. I trust that this is satisfactory (3194_attachment_01.pdf).

Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from a number of data sources used by forces for police purposes. The detail collected to respond specifically to your request is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when interpreting those data.

The figures provided therefore are our best interpretation of relevance of data to your request, but you should be aware that the collation of figures for ad hoc requests may have limitations and this should be taken into account when those data are used.

If you decide to write an article / use the enclosed data we would ask you to take into consideration the factors highlighted in this document so as to not mislead members of the public or official bodies, or misrepresent the relevance of the whole or any part of this disclosed material.
