As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Several rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel.
