What fuel policy do you recommend?
We recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, find a gas station before you bring it back. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
