Additional information about using our cars and how to access them

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 please let the Hooky Car Club coordinator know on carclub@hn-lc.org.uk. 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 Polo 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.
