|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the end. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full.

Ask the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you drop-off your car||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 collect the vehicle, and you don't have 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 need to find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
