    Excise duty is levied on petroleum products manufactured or produced 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 2011-12 financial year were:

    • fuel tax credits
    • product stewardship for oil program
    • cleaner fuels grants scheme.

    This chapter contains statistics on grants or benefits paid under these fuel schemes for the 2011-12 financial year.
