|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you pick up your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car when you are done. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel.

|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most rental car companies give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we advise returning it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
