What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with the needle at "F". If you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, find a filling station before you return the car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
