|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your automobile. Use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need.

We usually recommend that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
