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.

We encourage a full tank policy. You should receive your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. For a cheaper rate, find a gas station before you bring your car back.
