|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your automobile. Use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car at the rental dealer. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with an empty tank. 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 return your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|

Before you drive off
Be sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the lot. It's worth the time to:
