|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas 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 when you are done. 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. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching 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|

We encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you should return it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back.
