Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car when you are done. 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 need to 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 be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Check with the supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to find for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to return it filled up. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car.

If you plan to see all that Topton and maybe even the rest of North Carolina offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Read the fine print to be certain they are actually "unlimited."
