If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Some rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your 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 the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|

- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
