If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel.

|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You fill the 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|
