Advisory fuel rates updated for June 2015

Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has updated its advisory fuel rates, to take effect from June 1.

Rates for diesel engines below 2000cc have been increased by 1p to 10p per mile (1600cc or less) and 12p per mile (1601-2000cc). The 2000cc+ diesel engine rate remains static at 14p.

Sub 1400cc petrol engines have seen an increase of 1p to 12p per mile, while 1401-1600cc engines have seen a decrease of 1p per mile, also to 12p, with an additional 1p added to the 2000cc+ petrol engine rate.

Update 03/06: HMRC has corrected the 1401-1600cc engine rate to 14p per mile.

    Two issues with the current rates 1) The AFR table does not agree to the detail on the "How AFR is calculated" page Petrol 1401-2000 shows correctly as14p on the detail sheet but shows 12p on the main table. 2) The detail calculation is not following the 4/5 rounding as per the notes on the page. Diesel up to 1600 shows AFR as 9 not the correct figure of 10 which does show on the main table. Diesel 1601 - 2000 shows AFR as 11 not the correct 12 which is also shown correctly on the main table. Am I missing something? As the mpg figures they are using for the calculation haven't changed yet fuel prices have increased the calculation should not produce a drop in AFR on any of the categories.

      Thanks Simon - as you point out, there was an error on the HMRC issued table which they did not update until yesterday - we have now updated our table accordingly.
