|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel 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|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay a more expensive price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Many suppliers offer a variety of fuel policies. However, the stand-out winner 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 Hysham.
