The variety of inventory kept by fleets is large, covering the many types of vehicles and equipment, as well as brands, operated by the public sector. The average value of repair parts inventory kept by fleets is almost a quarter million dollars, with values reaching around a half-million for larger federal and state fleets. While there are companies offering parts services for fleets, 99 percent of fleets report operating their own parts rooms.

On the fuel side, diesel and gasoline fuel inventory kept at fueling sites averages about $28,000 and $103,000, respectively.  About 85 percent of fleets reported having some inventory of traditional fuels, and about 80 percent not storing these fuels were smaller fleets. The percent of fleets that report storing alt-fuel inventory is 10 or less, depending on the type of alternative fuel.
