New company car advisory fuel rates have been published which take effect from 1 March 2022. Despite the recent record prices for petrol and diesel and predictions of further rises, the rates have remained the same except for the rate per mile for an LPG with an engine size of 1400cc or fewer, which decreased by 1p to 8 pence per mile.

HMRC reviews the advisory fuel rates quarterly on 1 March, 1 June, 1 September, and 1 December. The rates are based on the fuel type and engine size of the company car.

The fuel rates for journeys undertaken on or after 1 March 2022 are as follows:

Engine size Petrol – amount per mile
1400cc or less 13p
1401cc – 2000cc 15p
Over 2000cc 22p


Engine size LPG – amount per mile
1400cc or less 8p
1401cc – 2000cc 10p
Over 2000cc 15p


Engine size Diesel – amount per mile
1600cc or less 11p
1601cc – 2000cc 13p
Over 2000cc 16p


Hybrid cars are treated as either petrol or diesel cars for this purpose.

The advisory rate for fully electric cars is 5 pence per mile. Electricity is not a fuel for car fuel benefit purposes.

The rates apply when you either:

  • reimburse employees for business travel in their company cars, or
  • require employees to repay the cost of fuel used for private travel.

The previous rates, which were effective from 1 December 2021, can be used for up to one month from the date the new rates apply, so until 1 April 2022.
