Advisory fuel rates update

As of 1 June 2019, 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 July 2019.

Engine size Petrol - amount per mile LPG - amount per mile
 1400cc or less 12p  8p 
 1401cc to 2000cc 15p  9p 
 Over 2000cc 22p  14p 

For diesel cars, the rates are:

Engine size Diesel - amount per mile
 1600cc or less 10p 
 1601cc to 2000cc 12p 
 Over 2000cc 14p 

Hybrid cars are treated as either petrol or diesel cars for this purpose, while the advisory electricity rate for fully electric cars is 4p per mile.

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.
