    The amount of fuel tax credits you can claim for blends acquired from 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2014 may be affected by the carbon charge. For more information, refer to Fuel tax credit rates and eligible fuels.

    Diesel blend

    You can claim fuel tax credits for blends of biodiesel and diesel; however the amount you can actually claim will depend on the amount of biodiesel in the blend. If your blend has 20% or less biodiesel (for example, B20) then it is considered to be 100% diesel and you can claim fuel tax credits on the entire amount.

    Petrol blends

    You can claim fuel tax credits for blends of ethanol and petrol; however the amount you can actually claim will depend on the amount of ethanol in the blend. If your blend has 10% or less ethanol (for example, E10) then it is considered to be 100% petrol and you can claim fuel tax credits on the entire amount.

    Other blends

    For other blends of two or more taxable fuels, including diesel blends containing more than 20% biodiesel and petrol blends containing more than 10% ethanol, the effective fuel tax paid is calculated based on the proportion of each taxable fuel.
