Advisory Fuel Rates Updated

1st June 2012


New company car advisory fuel rates have been published to take effect from 1 June 2012. HMRC’s website states:

‘These rates apply to all journeys on or after 1 June 2012 until further notice. For one month from the date of change, employers may use either the previous or new current rates, as they choose. Employers may therefore make or require supplementary payments if they so wish, but are under no obligation to do either.’ 

The advisory fuel rates for journeys undertaken on or after 1 June 2012 are:

Engine Size               Petrol              LPG

1400cc or less             15p                11p          

1401cc to 2000cc         18p                13p

2001cc and above         26p                19p


Engine Size               Diesel

1600cc or less              12p

1601cc to 2000cc          15p

2001cc and above          18p


Please note that not all of the rates have been increased, so care must be taken to apply the correct rate.
