Advisory fuel rates update

As of 1 September 2018, advisory fuel rates have been updated for employees' usage of company cars.

The following rates are now in place for petrol and LPG-fuelled cars provided by your employer, while the previous rates can be used until 1 October 2018.

Engine size Petrol - amount per mile LPG - amount per mile
1400cc or less 12p 7p
1401cc to 2000cc 15p 9p 
Over 2000cc  22p  13p 

For diesel cars, the rates are:

Engine size  Diesel - amount per mile
1600cc or less  10p 
1601cc to 2000cc  12p 
Over 2000cc  13p 

Hybrid cars are treated as either petrol or diesel cars for this purpose.

These rates will apply when an employer reimburses employees for business travel in their company car and when employees are required to repay the cost of fuel used for private travel.
