|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you want and top it off when you return your car. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used.

|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
