|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your automobile. Use as much gas as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. 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. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't refill the tank|

What fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You should receive your automobile with a full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
