|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your car. Use as much gas as you need and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you 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 if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several providers offer a refund for any unused fuel.

What type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You pick up your rental topped off. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car.
