Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest 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 and return the car with an empty tank. Some providers provide 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 bring back the car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
