If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need.

We usually advise that you choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
