Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full.

|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|

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