AFR decreases for smaller diesel engines and larger petrol engines

fuel pump prices

Drivers claiming AFR for business mileage reimbursement will claim less if they are driving a petrol or diesel car with an engine smaller than 2.0-litres from June 1.

HMRC announced on May 28 that the reimbursement rate for petrol and diesel engines up to 2,000 cc would be cut by a penny per mile. The rate for diesel engines larger than 2,000cc remains unchanged although any petrol engine larger than 1,400cc would see a reduced reimbursement rate.

All LPG payments remain unchanged.

The new rates will come into effect from June 1, 2013.
