|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your automobile. Use as much gas as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||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 can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with 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 need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay a higher rate 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 pick up your vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
