As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary 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 charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of gas and return the car with an empty tank. Many providers provide a refund for any unused fuel.
