|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your car. Use as much petrol as you wish and top it off when you return your car. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|

What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with the needle at "F". If you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before bringing the car rental. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
