Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find an open gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to find for a gas station before you bring back the car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We recommend a full tank policy. You should get your automobile with the needle at "F". However, if you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, find a filling station before bringing the car rental. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you wish to see all that Desdemona and maybe even the rest of Texas offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Go over the fine print to make sure they are truly "unlimited."
