  • Refueling Police Vehicles

    Where do police officers refuel their vehicles? (I'm from LA and I have never seen a police car at a gas station.) I am assuming the vehicles are fueled up at stations.

    Question for all officers: How many miles per gallon does your vehicle get?

    Thank you for your time.

    We have city pumps and fleet cards that we can use at regular gas stations.

    About 8-10mpg.
    I miss you, Dave.

      County-owned pumps. No idea on the mileage.

        Sorry, OPSEC, not going to answer. Don't want some skell sneaking up on me fueling up my car and getting the drop on me. Also, OPSEC on what kind of fuel we use. It's so good you could rub it on your nuts and let your dog lick it off.


        See how ridiculous the officer safety thing can get?

        Seriously, we fill up at the city garage, and have a fleet card if we're out of town for training, or something similar.

          We fill up at town pumps...I don't know exactly, but 10-12mpg sounds about right, depending on the day.

              I get about 11mpg. But we feed our gerbils the good food.

                Here in the District of Columbia, the District Government has Fleet Fuel Sites all over the city. Our cars have proximity readers attached to the gas tank, which must be read by the pump in order to pump the fuel.

                  I don't fill the vehicle up, I just leave it for the next shift to worry about.

                    Fleet cards good at any station with pay at the pump capabilities,10-12 mpg.

                      My Agency prefers us to use the State Motor Pool (Mongtomery), if possible. Other than that, each Trooper has an issued Fleet Fuel card. The card is specifically for the vehicle he/she is driving. It can be used anywhere in the State.

                          Same here with the NYPD and the tank sensors. Too bad half of the departments ID cards(also fuel cards) do not work the pumps.

                          Just when they thought they had something good, they screw it up.
