The public service website presents the fuel allowance as a system allowing results equivalent to those of the rebate . “Each member of a modest couple who uses their vehicle to get to their place of work will receive aid of €100. The couple will therefore be able to benefit from 200 € of aid for the purchase of fuel. For a person who travels an average of 12,000 km/year, this represents aid of around 10 euro cents per liter over the year. »
