As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Many suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas when 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 go on a long trip|
