If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty.

What fuel policy should I get?
Most suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We advise bringing your car back filled up. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before returning the rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Sunset?
If you plan to see all that Sunset and maybe even the rest of Texas offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Review the fine print to make sure your mileage is truly "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Make sure you go over a few items before you leave the lot. You should:
- Walk around the vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is properly 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 working the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new area
