As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you bring back the car||You usually pay a more expensive rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up 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 find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
