HMRC publishes new advisory fuel rates

HMRC has announced latest advisory fuel rates, which take effect from 1 September 2019 and introduce minor rate changes for company car drivers.

FairFuleUK has proposed to government the implementation of a PumpWatch voluntary code, whereby the price at the pump better reflects the wholesale price of oil

The latest rates take effect from 1 September 2019

The changes bring 1ppm reductions for mid-size and larger petrol engines and mid-size diesels plus a 1ppm increase for mid-size LPG engines.

The new tables are as follows:

Engine size Petrol – amount per mile LPG – amount per mile
1400cc or less 12 pence (12p) 8 pence (8p)
1401cc to 2000cc 14 pence (15p) 1o pence (9p)
Over 2000cc 21 pence (22p) 14 pence (14p)
Engine size Diesel – amount per mile
1600cc or less 10 pence (10p)
1601cc to 2000cc 11 pence (12p)
Over 2000cc 14 pence (14p)

As before, hybrid cars are to be treated as petrol or diesel vehicles, while the electric vehicle rate remains at 4ppm. Rates for plug-in hybrids have still not been announced.
