3. Only the Fuel Rate and the Tax rate can be changed for existing Vehicle Details. If you want to set up a new Fuel Type or Engine Size, click New Vehicle Details.

5. On the Fuel Rates tab, click on + Add New Rate and add the Effective Date and Rate (per mile) in the relevant fields.

Please note: In the event a mileage expense is dated before the oldest fuel rate, the oldest rate will be used.

6. Navigate to the Visibility tab. Here you can decide which of your users, departments or user groups are able to access this fuel rate on their expense form. 

Please note: In order to calculate the VAT on mileage, you will also have to navigate to the Cars and Vans mileage rate and ensure that Calculate VAT is ticked for the relevant rate.  

7. Once you're happy, click Update to update the Fuel Rate to your account.
