HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has made a further change to advisory fuel rates (AFRs) after initially publishing new rates for the next quarter last week.
The new rates, which come into force from March 1, initially showed that the rate for petrol engined vehicles above 2000cc had fallen by 1p per mile, from 21ppm to 20ppm, and the rate for LPG vehicles above 2000cc had increased by a penny a mile, from 13ppm to 14ppm.
However, HMRC has since amended its figures online to show the petrol rate has increased by 1ppm, not fallen as originally stated. The new rate from March 1 will therefore be 22ppm.
The 1ppm increase, from 13ppm to 14ppm, for LPG vehicles above 2000cc remains effective from March 1.
All other rates are unchanged.
Fleet News is waiting to hear from HMRC why the original petrol rate it published last week was subsequently changed.
