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. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need.

|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get the car|
