Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for a gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. 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, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need.

Most suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we advise bringing your car back with a full tank of gas. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the rental.
