Advisory fuel rates

The latest update to HMRC's advisory fuel rates shows several 1p reductions. Rates per mile for this quarter are:

Engine size Petrol Diesel LPG
1,400cc or less 11p 9p 7p
1,401cc to 1,600cc 13p 9p 8p
1,601cc to 2,000cc 13p 11p 8p
Over 2,000cc 21p 12p 13p

The rates apply from 1 September 2017. The next review is 1 December, although current rates can be used until 31 December. The rates can be used if you reimburse an employee who has privately bought fuel for business mileage in a company car, or where an employee is required to repay the cost of private travel.
