What is the fuel policy for Earth rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your car. Use as much petrol as you need 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Check with the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching 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 won't have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We encourage bringing the car back filled up. If you want to save some money, find a filling station before you bring it back. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Unlimited miles is a great choice if you decide to do a bit of sightseeing or visit several clients all over Earth. You can drive as much as you want and not incur added charges. Go over your policy to find out if there are any restrictions.
Tips before you leave the lot
Before you get going on your Earth adventure, go over a few things prior to leaving the lot. It's worth the time to:
- Walk around the car and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. If you notice any, mark it down on the paperwork

- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
