Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for an open gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||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 when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

If you want to check out all that Mineral Springs and maybe even the rest of North Carolina offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Mineral Springs. Go over the fine print to be certain they are truly "unlimited."

Make sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the rental lot on your Mineral Springs adventure. You should take time to:

- Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
