Changes to Advisory Fuel Rates


Posted on 10 July 2015

New advisory fuel rates now apply to those who are reimbursing employees for their business mileage and for employees who need to pay back the personal miles they have done in their company car. 

Due to the decrease in the number of AFRs (Advisory Fuel Rates) and the rise in fuel rates adjustments have subsequently been made.

The current rates can be seen below:

Engine Size Petrol - Amount per mile LPG - amount per mile
1400cc or less 12p 8p
1401cc to 2000cc 14p 9p
Over 2000cc 21p 14p


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.

Using the old rates may potentially lead to liability and fuel scale charges can be sought, making it of paramount importance that these new rates are used.
