What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You should receive your car topped off. If you return your 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 keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before returning the vehicle. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
