Q:

What are the current advisory fuel rates (AFRs)?

A:

Rates from December 1, 2019

The new repayment rate for a diesel car with an engine size of 1,600cc or less decreases by 1p per mile (ppm) to 9ppm.  

However, the rate for a diesel company car with an engine of 1,601cc to 2,000cc stays the same, as does the rate for a diesel car with an engine over 2,000cc.

The AFRs for all petrol company cars are unchanged.

Meanwhile, LPG vehicles with an engine of 1,400cc or less will stay the same at 8ppm, but for LPG vehicles with an engine from 1,401-2,000cc, the rate decreases from 10ppm to 9ppm. LPG vehicles with an engine above 2,000cc will stay the same at 14ppm.   

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

The rates below take effect from December 1, 2019.

Engine size Petrol - amount per mile LPG - amount per mile
1400cc or less 12 pence 8 pence
1401cc to 2000cc 14 pence 9 pence

NOTE: From September 1, 2018 HMRC introduced an advisory fuel rate (AFR) for pure electric cars at 4 pence per mile (ppl).

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.
