The Cars

Renault Zoe Electric HY13JYE : Based at Hook Norton Church of England Primary School, Sibford Road, OX15 5JS. Please park at the North side of the school (through the vehicle entrance and straight ahead) by the charging point and leave the car charging after use. The car has a range of about 80 miles on a full charge.

Black VW Polo LT05GVR: Based outside Hook Norton Library, High Street, OX15 5NH. Please park on the road nearby but not too close to the library entrance. We are not permitted to park in the library car park.. Please do not park in the Library car park or too close to the Library entrance. If necessary park further along outside the churchyard.

Chippy VW Polo AF54ZCX: Based at the Co-operative Food supermarket car park in Chipping Norton. Use the designated bay.

Skoda Octavia Estate GF56URH: Based outside the Sun Inn, High Street, OX15 5NH. Please park facing the road and preferably do not park next to Anvil House. If the spaces are all taken park opposite outside the church. This car has a tow bar and can be used for towing with loads as advised in the car manual. There should be a rear number plate in the boot for use on a trailer.

Using the cars

Find the car key in the keysafe near to where the car is parked. Inspect the outside of the car and the interior for tidiness. Report any damage or untidy condition on the tripsheet in the car. Note down the starting mileage, date and time. Enter your name and sign that you have checked the car inside and out.

Before you return the diesel cars check there is at least a quarter of a tank fuel remaining. If the car needs refuelling find a fuel station and fill up with diesel or you can use the Biodiesel facility once you have been shown how to use it. After your journey fill in the mileage, time and date on the tripsheet, lock the car and return the key to the keysafe.

Fuel: When out and about fill up with ordinary diesel at a garage and reclaim the amount spent by leaving a VAT receipt in the car and recording the amount spent on the vehicle trip sheet. The cars may be filled with biodiesel at the Brewery without charge once you have been shown how to use the pump. Please ask the Car Club Coordinator for a demonstration.

The Polos will run on 100% waste-oil biodiesel fuel but the Skoda Octavia needs to be have at least 50% mineral diesel to prevent poor starting when the engine is warm. If starting does prove difficult, put your foot on the accelerator pedal and turn the ignition key.

The Zoe electric car should be plugged in to the charging point when left at the school and unplugged before being taken away. It may be plugged in to either a home 3-pin socket or a fast wall charger (type 2 – Mennekes ) when away from its base.
