|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your automobile. Use as much petrol as you want and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. 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. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. 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 pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Several suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|

What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most rental car companies give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we encourage bringing it back filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
