The fuel benefit charge is reduced to nil if the employee is required to make good the full cost of all private fuel, and does so. A proportionate reduction is made if the company car is only available for part of the year, where private fuel ceases to be provided part-way through a year, or where the benefit of the car is shared.

There is currently no fuel benefit charge for cars powered by electricity. HMRC do not regard electricity as a fuel.
