|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off 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 need to replace the fuel you used. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
