Fuel is always a complex issue. Unfortunately, there is no an ideal way to handle this, though some ways are better than others. There are three possible arrangements you can have with the agency as regards fuel.
The first one would be that you take the car with a full tank and you pay for it taking into account the prices per liter. Thus, you pay the gasoline and forget about it. Obviously, while you have the car, you will have to pay for the gasoline, but you will pay no money when returning the car. You may think this is the best way to handle fuel. The problem is that you pay for the full tank. You use it all the time, you fill it up. When you return the car, there will be some gasoline in it. That is to say, that unless you drive back the car with little gasoline, you will end up losing money since you have taken the car with a full tank and now you are returning it with half of it. Do not think they will pay you back —this never happens.
The second option is that you take the car with a full tank but you do not pay for it: you return it with a full tank. The problem with this option is quite simple. If you take the car and pay nothing, then you fill the tank in a cheap gas station, and therefore, you will save some money. The problem is that is quite impossible to return the car with a full tank, and for each missing liter, the agency will charge you a lot. And furthermore, the areas where the agencies are located do not have gas stations nearby. Thus, this is not a very convenient way either.
The last option is the worst of all. This consists of not paying attention to the amount of gasoline the car has when picking it up or returning it. You can pick up the car with the tank full and return it empty, if you are lucky. It may also happen that you pick up a car with little gasoline and that will be a problem. But beyond being the gasoline enough or not, you will not know how much gasoline you will need to buy when filling in the tank. If you like adventures and want to take the risk, this is the best option to save money. Obviously, in order to do so, you have to take the risk at all possible problems.
