|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need.

|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.
