HMRC announces latest advisory fuel rates

By / 8 years ago / Latest News / No Comments

Under the latest changes, LPG-engined vehicles see a 1p decrease in the rates for engine sizes of 1400cc or less and 1401cc to 2000cc, which drop from 11p to 10p and 13p to 12p respectively. 

Meanwhile there’s a 1p increase in the rate for diesel-engined cars with an engine size of 1600cc or less, with the rate up from 12p to 13p – the first change since 1 June 2012. 

Petrol rates remain exactly the same and have been at this level since 1 June 2011.


The latest rates (old ones in brackets) are:

Engine size



1400cc or less

15p (15p)

10p (11p)

1401cc to 2000cc

13p (12p)

1601cc to 2000cc

Over 2000cc

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


These rates apply to all journeys on or after 1 March 2013 until further notice. For one month from the date of change, employers may use either the previous or new current rates, as they choose. Employers may therefore make or require supplementary payments if they so wish, but are under no obligation to do either.
