Q:

What are the current advisory fuel rates (AFRs)?

A:

Rates from September 1, 2019

The diesel rate for a company car, with an engine 1,400cc or less, stays the same as does the rate for a diesel car with an engine over 2,000cc.

However, the AFR for a diesel car, with an engine size from 1,601cc to 2,000cc, decreases by 1p per mile (ppm), from 12-11ppm.  

The AFR for a petrol company car with an engine of 1,400cc or less stays the same at 12ppm, but both those with an engine from 1,400-2,000cc and over 2,000cc fall by 1ppm to 14ppm and 21ppm, respectively.

Meanwhile, a LPG vehicle 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 increases from 9ppm to 10ppm. 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 September 1, 2019.

Engine size Petrol - amount per mile LPG - amount per mile
1400cc or less 12 pence 8 pence
1401cc to 2000cc 14 pence 10 pence
Over 2000cc 21 pence 14 pence

 

Engine size Diesel - amount per mile
1600cc or less 10 pence
1601cc to 2000cc 11 pence
Over 2000cc 14 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.
