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? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with the tank empty.

What fuel policy should I get?
Most rental car companies give you a full tank policy. We encourage bringing your car back topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the rental car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
