I understand that this rate may be higher than what I would pay to purchase fuel from a service station in the area. The refueling service charge will be determined as follows: If I buy fuel during the term of the Rental but the tank is not full at return, this charge will be the per litre rate specified on the front of the Rental document multiplied by your estimate of the number of litres required to refill the tank. This estimate is arrived at by using the manufacturer's specified tank capacity for the Vehicle and then determining the capacity of the portion of the tank that is empty as indicated by the Vehicle's fuel gauge.
