As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need.

|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Many rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel.
