Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. 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 need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Some suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||You won't have to search for a gas station before you return your car||You usually pay a higher rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|

Most rental car suppliers provide you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we encourage returning it with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before returning the car rental.
