|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your car. Use as much gas as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank?
