    Chris it's 52 ltr's. Nothing new about rental companys pulling a fast one. Thats about right for the refueling per ltr rate. But they over the top on the amount of lts ltr's
    To slow.

    Yup, they owe him 15 litres @ £1.50 = £22.50

    .......and that's if the tank was bone dry when he returned it...........

    And the VAT.
    Plus their will be a refueling surcharge. "If you know what i mean"
    Like 10 quid for the fact they had to fuel it + the 67 ltr's. Just check it also.

    I wonder how much above the tank capacity you can get in there mind... you know how some people keep filling after the pump stops, so the fuel goes right up the filler neck. Gotta be a fair bit more than the tank, probably only a gallon or so though.

    Rental companies return policies vary
    It is always best to check and get it in writing as part of the agreement and/or on a leaflet or piece of paper
    When I hire from National it is "full out" and "full in"
    When I hire from ERAC it is "empty out" and "empty in"
    I really don't like "empty out" / "empty in" as there is a risk you can run out fuel trying to find a PFS in an unknown area, and there is never any "empty" tank when you return it!
