Dear Cheltenham Borough Council,

Mis-filling of motor vehicles with the wrong fuel is a major issue
in the UK with the costs of doing so ranging from £300 for a simple
drain and flush through of the tank to over £5000 for those
unfortunate enough to irreparably damage their engine. The AA has
estimated that 150,000 such events occur each year. In addition,
there is a heavy cost in terms of missed appointments and
inconvenience.

Q1. Please provide the number of diesel vehicles currently operated
by the Council and the number of occasions any of these vehicles
has been misfilled with petrol requiring unscheduled servicing
during each of the last two years.

Q2. Please provide the total direct cost associated with the
mis-fuelling events.

Q3. If the motor vehicles are owned/maintained by a leasing company
please provide the name of the leasing company.

Yours faithfully,

Nick Panchaud
