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. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|

|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank 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 won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you get the car|
