What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for an open gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your car. You can use as much fuel as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. 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. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the 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 pick up your vehicle, and you won'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 have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
