What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You should get your automobile with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
