What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for an open gas station near your rental car supplier
|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. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. 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 can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Several suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy should I get?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to return it filled up. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car.

If you want to explore all that Montrose and maybe even the rest of Michigan offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Review the fine print to be certain they are actually "unlimited."
