Vehicle Fleets

FY 2010 Usage: 33,330 gallons of gasoline, 15,340 gallons of diesel
% of GHG Emissions: 3%

All VIMS cars and trucks at the Gloucester Point campus are filled from a single gasoline tank on campus. Receipts from the filling of this tank were counted to determine annual usage. The VIMS automobile and boat fleets use a similar amount of gasoline annually. However, the boat fleet also uses diesel fuel (almost all of the above amount). Data collection of automobile gasoline use could be streamlined if the date and number of gallons from tank filling receipts were entered into a spreadsheet.
