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, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need.

Check with the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel 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 may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station shortly after you collect the car|
