Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't refill the tank|

We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, fill up your tank before returning the rental car.
