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. Used a quarter of a tank?

|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
