|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your car. Use as much gas 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 refill the amount of fuel that you've used.

Check with the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
