 1400cc or less 12p  8p 
 1401cc to 2000cc 14p  10p

Engine size Diesel (per mile)
 1600cc or less 10p

Hybrid cars are treated as either petrol or diesel cars for this purpose, while the advisory electricity rate for fully electric cars is 4p per mile.

These rates apply when an employer reimburses employees for business travel in their company car and when employees are required to repay the cost of fuel used for private travel.
