Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station close to your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you get your car. Use as much petrol as you need and top it off when you return your car at the rental dealer. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you 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 won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You usually pay a higher rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
