|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your automobile. Use as much fuel as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. 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. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the supplier 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 might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
