|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car at the rental office. 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. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary 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 refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with the tank empty. Many rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You should receive your car with a full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a filling station before you return the car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
