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. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Several rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
