Q:

What are the current advisory fuel rates (AFRs)?

A:

There is also a 1ppm increase for LPG vehicles with an engine of 1,400cc or less, from 7-8ppm, and for LPG vehicles with an engine from 1,600-2,000cc, from 9-10ppm.

LPG vehicles with an engine above 2,000cc will see a 2ppm increase from December 1, from 13-15ppm.   

The advisory electricity rate (AER) for plug-in cars remains unchanged at 4ppm.

The new rate, called the Advisory Electricity Rate (AER), has been set at 4p per mile and will be published alongside AFRs for petrol, diesel and LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) cars based on engine size.

Plug-in hybrid and hybrid cars will continue to be treated as either petrol or diesel models for mileage reimbursement purposes.
