|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need.
