|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you collect your vehicle. Use as much gas as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
