Petition of Ryan Humphreys: Allow road user levies to be refunded to aircraft using non-aviation fuel
Ryan Humphreys has posted this to Kiwi Pilots:
I've started a petition to Parliament to allow road user levies to be refunded to aircraft using non-aviation fuel. MOGAS is increasingly becoming a more popular choice for new aircraft with some engine manufacturers approving it for use. Most if not all experimental, light-sport and microlight aircraft run on MOGAS and there is no reason pilots should have to pay for the road user levies included in MOGAS.
87 cents per Liter is currently the road user levy for MOGAS. With Farmers and off road vehicles given the opportunity to get a refund on this with some record keeping. This makes 91 $1.10/ Liter reducing the cost of flying!
Who is entitled to a refund? You’re entitled to a refund of the excise duty and the goods and services tax (GST) charged on motor spirits that’s used:
as fuel in an exempted vehicle as fuel in a road user charges-licensed vehicle as fuel in a commercial vessel for search and rescue purposes in a dedicated rescue vessel for commercial purposes other than as fuel in any motor vehicle, vessel, or Aircraft. www.nzta.govt.nz/vehicles/fuel-excise-duty-refunds/
