|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 offer a refund for any unused fuel.

|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We suggest bringing it back topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Unlimited miles is a great option if you plan to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of business associates all over Sparta. You can cruise wherever you like and not incur additional charges. Be sure to read your policy to find out if there are mileage limitations.
Know before you go
Make sure you go over a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. It's important to:
- Look over the vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. If so, write it down on the paperwork
- Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
