    Excise duty is levied on petroleum products in Australia. Customs duty applies (at the same rate) to imported petroleum products. The ATO administers fuel schemes that aim to:

    • cut fuel costs by providing a credit for the fuel tax (excise and/or customs duty) included in the price of fuel, when used for specified activities
    • support and encourage the environmentally sustainable management and recycling of used oil
    • encourage the manufacture and importation of fuels that have a reduced impact on the environment.

    The fuel schemes for the 2009-10 financial year were:

    • fuel tax credits
    • energy grants credits scheme (EGCS) for alternative fuels
    • product stewardship for oil program
    • cleaner fuels grants scheme.

    This chapter contains statistics on grants or benefits paid under these fuel schemes for the 2009-10 financial year.
