4 Ways To Save on Fuel When Renting a Car

Renting a car? The daily rate is only part of the expense. If you have a long trip ahead of you, gas

can add up quickly!

On behalf of Car Rental 8, here are some basic tips for saving money on fuel…

          • Avoid prepaid gasoline plans or having the rental company fill up for you. It’s always

          best to purchase the gas yourself, as a prepaid gasoline plan or fill-up upon returning the

          vehicle will cost more per gallon.

          • Avoid getting gas near the airport. If you’re returning your car at or around the airport, fill

          up beforehand. Airport gasoline is often more expensive because they’re aware it’s a last

          minute and only option for many.

          • Buy basic gas. Most gas stations offer regular, mid-grade and premium gasoline. Regular is

          the most affordable, so unless you have been instructed to do otherwise, always fill up with


          • Get a vehicle that’s good on gas. Simply put, don’t reserve the gas guzzler if you don’t

          need to. If it’s just you and you don’t have a lot of luggage, a 2-door economy vehicle will

          serve the purpose and save you money!
