What fuel policy should I get?

At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, fill up your tank before you bring the car back.
