Fuel Credit

I was puzzled when we returned our Budget rental car last week and found an "On The Road Expenses" credit of $-0.77 which slightly reduced the final cost.  Scanning the detail of the invoice I found the explanation.  I returned the car with 18.4 gallons of gas in the tank, but the car had only 18.0 gallons when I picked it up, and Budget gave us a 77 cent credit, which works out to $1.78 a gallon.  I never knew that they could measure the amount of fuel in the tank that closely and it's nice to see they treat their customers well who really do return their rental with a full tank of gas.
