|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your car. Use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. 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.
