News: July 2012
Advisory fuel rates from your employer
The quarterly review of rates from 1 June 2012 resulted in a small decrease of some of the rates for diesel, to reflect the slight fall in the price of that fuel, but the employer can if it wishes use the old rates for June and only apply the new rates from 1 July. That could help you a little, but the petrol rates are unaltered.
Fuel prices have recently reduced as part of a mini price war, but that will seemingly not last long with a 3p per litre increase being imminent as an increase in duty announced by the government.
The rates are:
|engine size||fuel cost per mile|
|to 1,400 cc||15p||11p|
|to 1600 cc||12p|
|1401 to 2000 cc||18p||13p|
|1601 to 2000 cc||15p|
