|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your car. Use as much petrol as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off 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 pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Many rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check 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 pick up the vehicle, and you won't need to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||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|
