How much fuel do the trains use in a year?

Brett Cooper made this Official Information request to KiwiRail

The request was successful.

From: Brett Cooper

Dear KiwiRail,
I would like to know how much fuel (diesel) the freight trains use each year.
I would like see a total usage for the North Island And South Islands.

If you don't have the freight train data then the total for all rail use in the two islands would be great.

Yours faithfully,

Brett Cooper
