|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car. 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. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you drop-off your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
