|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you want 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 need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Check with the supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
