|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish 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 pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full.
