You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|

What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We encourage a full to full policy. You should get into your car with a full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before bringing the rental car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
