Fuel Schemes

Fuel schemes provide credits and grants to reduce the costs of some fuels or provide a benefit to encourage recycling of waste oils. There are various types of schemes:

  • Fuel tax credits for business – provides a credit for the excise or customs duty included in the price of fuel used for business activities, in machinery, plant, equipment and heavy vehicles
  • Fuel tax credits – non business – credit for fuel used to generate domestic electricity or operate emergency vehicles or vessels for non-profit organisations
  • Product stewardship for oil (PSO) program – supports recycling oil for environmental sustainability. This includes recycling used oil and using recycled oil

The former Energy grants credits scheme that applied to alternative fuels and diesel no longer operates for new purchases of fuel.
