HMRC have announced new fuel rates which apply to all journeys on or after 1st September 2019. For one month from this date, either the old rates or the new rates can be used. Hybrid cars, for this purpose, are treated as either petrol or diesel.
These amounts can also be used for VAT recovery purposes, but the employer must retain receipts.
In addition, the advisory rate for a full electric car is 4p per mile, and electricity is not a fuel for car fuel taxable benefit purposes.
The new rates are :
Petrol : 1,400cc or less 12p; 1,401cc to 2,000cc 14p; over 2,000cc 21p
LPG : 1,400cc or less 8p; 1,401cc to 2,000cc 10p; over 2,000cc 14p
Diesel : 1,600cc or less 10p; 1,601cc to 2,000cc 11p; over 2,000cc 14p
