Check the policy before you decide.

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for a gas station near your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. 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 quarter of a tank? Then you just 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'll pick up the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Several rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you get the car|

We usually advise 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.
