As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|

- Check out your vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. If so, write it down on the paperwork
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
