As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need.

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
