Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your car. Use as much petrol as you wish and top it off when you return your car. 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, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest 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 fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you bring back the car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it 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.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you wish to check out all that Sunland and maybe even the rest of California offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Go over the fine print to make sure they are actually "unlimited."

Make sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the car rental lot on your Sunland adventure. It's important to:
- Walk around the car and be sure there is no dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
