|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||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 need to pay 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|
