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.
But he can see that the Borrower who refuelled his car using the fuel card only paid $25 (for the 100km they drove).
Chris is confused, until he remembers that he now has nearly a full tank of fuel in his car. He may use this fuel himself, or if a Borrower uses it, then he will receive the distance income to cover it in his next monthly invoice.
Reminder: Car Owners must not use the fuel card
We have credit limits on the fuel cards, so please don’t use it yourself to pay for fuel – pay using your usual method instead.
