Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find an open gas station near the drop-off location
|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 need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. 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. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel 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 refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel.

|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Unlimited miles is a good choice if you plan to do a bit of sightseeing or visit a lot of business associates all over Papineau. You can drive as much as you like without incurring added charges. Make sure to read your rental agreement to see if there are any limitations.
