There is a collective shudder throughout the nation any time fuel prices are mentioned. But don’t be so glum, it’s good news this time. Fuel tax credits have been expanded, so it’s no longer just fuel used in heavy vehicles that can be claimed.
Whether you’re using fuel in your whipper snipper or chainsaw, your chances of a claim are good, so see if you’re eligible.
There is a downside though; fuel used by lightweight vehicles travelling on public roads, alternative fuels and aviation fuels still can’t be claimed.
