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. Used a half of a tank?

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
