When you rent a vehicle it comes with a full tank of fuel.

I've rented vehicles three times so far in the last two months from 3 different companies here (Bonaire). All have given me a car with about 1/4 of a tank of gas in it and I had to return the car with the same amount when I dropped it back off.

Christina is correct. Most of the rental companies now have vehicles with 1/4 tank of gas when you pick it up, and are to return it with 1/4 tank of gas. They do this due to the gas stealing...lots of rental trucks with full tanks in a lot was too tempting I guess!

we rented a car here in the states a few years ago. it had a full tank when we got it and we planned on returning it with a full tank, but, like boat chick, we got distracted and forgot to fill it. we got into the parking lot near the airport (hartford, ct, i think) and realized it. we still had time left on the rental so we left and put maybe $15 in it and filled it...a little hassle but better than paying about $60 to have them fill it. we were lucky that they let us leave the lot with the car but we had all the papers and they saw that we had over two hours till it had to be back.
