Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used.

Most suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we recommend returning it topped off. For a cheaper rate, find a gas station before returning the rental car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
