You pay for all of the fuel that is used in your car – whether it is used by you, your Additional Drivers, or Borrowers.
You get reimbursed for any fuel that is used by Borrowers, through your 25c/km distance income.
Understanding fuel costs in your monthly invoice
You may find that the cost of fuel paid for with the fuel card exceeds the distance income you receive - particularly if the tank is filled near the end of the month.
At the end of the month, Chris sees on his invoice that he was charged $60 for a full tank of fuel.
