Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use.

You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|

Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you bring back the car||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
