Dear National Extremism Tactical Coordination Unit,

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 Police department 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

Yours faithfully,

I have been forwarded the request you made to ACPO regarding the
misfuelling of vehicles in connection with NETCU.

Under the FOIA organisations listed in Schedule 1 to the Act - either by
name or by a description - have to provide public access to information
they hold.

NETCU is not a public authority as defined by Schedule 1 of the FOIA.
Therefore there are currently no obligations on NETCU to disclose
information under the Act.

However, in the spirit of the Act, NETCU will consider all requests for
information and aim to make available as much information that it properly
can. (http://www.netcu.org.uk/about/foi.jsp), therefore, please find below
the answers to your questions.

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

NETCU has three vehicles *** all of which are diesel. We have had no
incidents of misfuelling, and therefore no unscheduled servicing in the
past two years.

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

N/A

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

The motor vehicles are not owned/maintained by a leasing company.
