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 is 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.


Previous rates, valid from June 1, 2020. 

You can use the previous rates for up to one month from the date the new rates apply.
