• Fuel blends

    You can claim fuel tax credits for fuel blends. The rate you can claim depends on the amount of biodiesel or fuel ethanol in each blend.

    From 1 July 2016, increased excise duty rates took effect for biodiesel and fuel ethanol manufactured in Australia.

    Common blends

    There are two common fuel blends, diesel and petrol blends.

    Diesel blends

    Blends of biodiesel and diesel with 20% or less biodiesel (for example B5 or B20), are considered to be 100% diesel and you can claim fuel tax credits at the diesel rate on the entire amount.

    Petrol blends

    Blends of fuel ethanol and petrol with 10% or less ethanol (for example E10) are considered to be 100% petrol and you can claim fuel tax credits at the petrol rate on the entire amount.
