What is the fuel policy for Wheaton rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you like 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 quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any gas you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Several rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas 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|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We advise a full tank policy. You should receive your vehicle with a full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before bringing the car rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great option if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Wheaton. You can drive as much as you like and not incur additional charges. Make sure to read your rental agreement to see if there are any restrictions.
Tips before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Wheaton trip, be sure you go over a few things prior to leaving the lot. You should take time to:
- Check out your vehicle and be sure there is no damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new area
