The rate for petrol cars with an engine size of 1,400cc or less increases by 1ppm, from 11-12ppm, as does the rate for petrol cars with an engine size from 1,401cc to 2,000cc, which increases from 14-15ppm. The remaining petrol rate for cars, with an engine of more than 2,000cc, remains unchanged.

There is also a 1ppm decrease for LPG vehicles above 2,000cc, from 14-13ppm. All other LPG rates remain unchanged.
