|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car when you are done. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid 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 gas you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Some suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't have to find for a gas station before you return your car||You usually pay a higher price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|

What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We advise a full tank policy. You should receive your car with a full tank. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a gas station before bringing the car rental.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great option if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit several clients all over Jupiter. You can drive as much as you like and not incur extra charges. Read over your policy to find out if there are mileage restrictions.
