What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with the needle at "F". But, if you return your 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 gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, fill up your tank before returning the car rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
