As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol 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 won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|

Know before you go
Before you get started on your Milan vacation, go over a few things before you leave the car rental lot. It's worth the time to:

- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
