|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your automobile. Use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car. 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. 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.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty.

We usually recommend that you choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
