Ireland Fuel Duty Reduction

We have had many queries about the planned Fuel Duty Reduction here in Ireland.

From 1 April 2022, a further decrease in duty for petrol and diesel road fuels will take effect arising from a 1cpl reduction in the non-carbon component. The decrease also applies to aviation gasoline, heavy oil used for aviation and for private pleasure navigation, and substitute fuels used as propellants.

From 1st May 2022, it is expected the planned increase in carbon tax from €33.40 to €41 per tonne of CO2 emitted will still take effect for kerosene, fuel oil, MGO, and Marked Gas Oil. We will provide figures in CPL terms for this separately later on.

NOTE: Lambe’s Oil understanding at present is that the previously announced 1cpl cut in NORA levy will not now take effect on 1st April as planned however we do not have official confirmation. We will provide further guidance as available.

From midnight 31st March 2022 duty rates for road fuels will decrease. This is assuming the NORA levy does not change:

Unleaded

Reduction of 0.8130 cents per litre + VAT @ 23%

Road Diesel

Reduction of 0.8130 cents per litre + VAT @ 23%
