|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your vehicle. Use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car at the end. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to find for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
