Advisory fuel rates update

1st March 2018

As of 1 March 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 April 2018.

Engine size  Petrol - amount per mile  LPG - amount per mile 
1400cc or less 11p  7p 
1401cc to 2000cc 14p  8p 
Over 2000cc  22p  13p 

The following rates also apply for diesel cars:

Engine size  Diesel - amount per mile 
1600cc or less  9p 
1601cc to 2000cc 11p 
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.
