Q:

What are the current advisory fuel rates (AFRs)?

A:

Rates from June 1, 2019

All rates, apart from the rate for diesel cars with an engine of 1,600cc or less, have increased by 1p per mile (ppm). 

The rate for diesel cars with an engine of 1,600cc or less stays the same at 10ppm, while those with an engine from 1,600-2,000cc and over 2,000cc increase by a penny to 12ppm and 14ppm, respectively.

Petrol cars with an engine of 1,400cc or less will have a new rate of 12ppm, while those with an engine from 1,400-2,000cc and over 2,000cc will have an AFR of 15ppm and 22ppm, respectively.    

Meanwhile, a LPG vehicle with an engine of 1,400cc or less increases to 8ppm, and for LPG vehicles with an engine from 1,401-2,000cc to 9ppm. LPG vehicles with an engine above 2,000cc will see an increase AFR from 13-14ppm.   

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

The rates below take effect from June 1, 2019.

Engine size Petrol - amount per mile LPG - amount per mile

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.
