I have already done a plenty of research on various topics, so that I am as much familiar with what is ahead of me as possible, but still I would like a little advice on refilling the gas.
If you could answer these questions, that would be great:
1) Do you need to pay first and then fill in the gas, or the other way around? (I suppose both options are used and it depends on the station, but still – what is used more, etc?)
2) If you pay first, does the nozzle stop when you reach the prepaid amount, or it allows you to fill in more and you have to pay the difference afterwards?
3) Are there more stations with self-service payment terminals, or more of those where you go inside to see the cashier?
4) Do the stations usually accept debit cards?
Also, if there is anything else you think I should know, feel free to share!
I know that gas is usually more expensive in the big cities, I have also downloaded the GasBuddy app, so this should make looking for gas at an adequate price smoother.
Oh, and one more thing:
When searching for a rental car at Avis, they show the car’s features, e.g. the number of bags you can fit in the trunk etc. and there is something with fuel that I don’t understand, usually the numbers are like 24/35, or 28/48… what are these? I have a hunch that it has something to do with the car’s consumption, but I have no clue how to read that.
Thanks a lot to everybody!
