|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your car. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car. 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?

Be sure to verify with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||You usually pay a higher rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
