HMRC updates advisory fuel rates
HMRC has published latest advisory fuel rates, which take effect from 1 September 2020 and reflect changes in fuel prices over the summer.
All petrol (pence per mile) rates are unchanged while LPGs see 1ppm increases for smaller and larger-engined cars.
And diesels in the 1601cc to 2000cc category get a 1p increase from 8ppm to 9ppm for the third quarter.
The rest of the rates remain the same, including the electric vehicle rate, which is still 4ppm. There’s also still no rates for plug-in hybrids despite the fleet industry has repeatedly called for them to help ensure PHEVs are correctly used.
The new tables are as follows (old rates in brackets):
|Engine size||Petrol – amount per mile||LPG – amount per mile|
|1400cc or less||10 pence (10p)||7 pence (6p)|
|1401cc to 2000cc||12 pence (12p)||8 pence (8p)|
|Over 2000cc||17 pence (17)||12 pence (11p)|
|Engine size||Diesel – amount per mile|
|1600cc or less||8 pence (8p)|
|1601cc to 2000cc||10 pence (9p)|
|Over 2000cc||12 pence (12p)|
As before, hybrid cars are to be treated as petrol or diesel vehicles.
