|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. 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, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
