The City of West Palm Beach, Fla., has 36 police cars with engine failure, and fleet staff are pointing to diesel fuel found in the city’s unleaded gasoline tanks. The fuel supplier may be at fault, WPTV reported.
It will cost West Palm Beach $200,000 to replace the engines on 36 Ford Police Interceptor vehicles. The City of Miami Gardens and Miami-Dade County police have also had engine problems, with the county reporting problems on 49 vehicles.
Meanwhile, Ford is doing its own investigation on the engine failures, according to WPTV.
