Advisory fuel rates update

HMRC has published the latest advisory fuel rates (AFR) for company car users, which see mileage rates increase by at least 1p for most petrol and diesel vehicles.

Effective from 1 September 2022, the AFR for petrol and diesel vehicles with engines of 1400-2000cc has increased by 1p while 2000cc vehicles will see an increase of 2p for petrol and 3p for diesel engines.

The previous rates, effective from 1 June 2022, can be used for up to one month from the date the new rates apply.

The new rates for September 2022 are as follows:

Advisory fuel only mileage rates
  Rates per mile
Engine size Petrol LPG
1400cc or smaller 15p 9p
1401cc to 2000cc 18p 11p
Over 2000cc 27p 17p


Engine size Diesel
1600cc or smaller 14p
1601cc to 2000cc 17p
Over 2000cc 22p

These rates are only applicable to employees using company cars to either reimburse them for business travel in the car or when an employee needs to repay the cost of fuel used for private travel. Employers must not use these rates in any other circumstances.

The AFR will be updated next on 1 December 2022.
