Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you get your car. Use as much gas as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||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 and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||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 pick up the vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas 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 get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
