What is the fuel policy for Corning rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you pick up your automobile. Use as much fuel as you want 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 pay for the fuel you use. 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. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Check with the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the 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|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you wish to check out all that Corning and maybe even the rest of Iowa offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Read the fine print to make sure they are actually "unlimited."
