|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your car. Use as much gas as you wish and top it off when you return your car when you are done. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Check with the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|

We usually recommend that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
