I receive a car allowance and use my own private vehicle. The compan however pays for my fuel n full via a fleet petrol card. This amount reflects on my payslip for tax deduction. Can I claim against this? If so how do I complete the return?

Then yes, you can claim against this provided you keep an accurate logbook which you can show SARS how much business vs personal travel you do.

Do I need to do anything in my return form for this, or will the calculation automatically be done by SARS with the travel information provided by me for the vehicle?

You need to include the details on the tax return, or using TaxTim we will ask you everything and then the calculation will be done automatically by SARS.
