If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|

At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with the needle at "F". 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 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before returning the vehicle.
