HMRC publishes new advisory fuel rates from March

Diesel fuel pump

HMRC has released its latest advisory fuel rates (AFRs), to come into force from March 1.

The rate for diesel cars with an engine of 1,600cc or less stays the same at 10 pence per mile (ppm), while those with an engine from 1,600-2,000cc and over 2,000cc fall by a penny to 11ppm and 13ppm, respectively.

Rates for petrol cars have also changed, all falling by 1p. That means the rate for petrol cars with an engine of 1,400cc or less will be 11ppm, while those with an engine from 1,400-2,000cc and over 2,000cc will have an AFR of 14ppm and 21ppm, respectively.    

There is also a decrease for LPG vehicles.  A LPG vehicle with an engine of 1,400cc or less falls from 8-7ppm, and for LPG vehicles with an engine from 1,600-2,000cc, from 10-8ppm. LPG vehicles with an engine above 2,000cc will fall from 15-13ppm.   

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