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.

|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before 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 go on a long trip|
