Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you need and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to 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 be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify 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|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
Many rental car suppliers offer a range of fuel policies. However, the stand-out choice is usually full-to-full. It simply means returning the car with the same level of gas as you got it with, so you'll never pay for anyone else's road trips through the Grand Ledge.
