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. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
