|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car. 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. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay a more expensive rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|

At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you should return it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a gas station before you return the car.
