At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You should receive your automobile with a full tank. If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
