|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 when you are done. 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. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you bring back the car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|

What fuel policy do you recommend?
We encourage a full tank policy. You receive the car topped off. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
