What is the fuel policy for Sacred Heart rental cars?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your car. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car 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? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We suggest a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, find a filling station before bringing the vehicle.

If you plan to explore all that Sacred Heart and maybe even the rest of Minnesota offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Read the fine print to make certain your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Make sure you go over a few things before you leave the rental lot on your Sacred Heart adventure. It's important to:
- Inspect the vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
