What is the VAT element of mileage on standard rate

Using the advisory fuel rates which can be found here you can calculate what percentage of the mileage rate applies to fuel and calculate the VAT on that element. 
For example, on 100 miles at 15p per mile advisory fuel rate £15 would be deemed to be attributed to fuel (out of the overall £45 mileage claim). This £15 includes the VAT and so is 120% of the fuel cost, therefore the VAT element can be calculated by dividing this figure by 6: £2.50.

The spreadsheet attached can be used to calculate this figure and the line item amounts to put into Xero .
