Hired a car for a week from Budget Car Rental at Melbourne airport. Picked up the car and noticed the trip meter was showing about 500+ km range but the fuel gauge showing full. Didn't take much notice and thought that the car has only 500+ range on a full tank of fuel.
At the of the hired period and before returning the car i fill up the car and droved to the airport which is about 5 - 6 kms away. Everything was fine and so we left Melbourne and headed home.
A couple of weeks later i realised they had charged me an extra $22 for fuel top up (about 16 litres). 16 litres of fuel would have took me to travel about 160km not the 5 -6 kms.
i'm suspecting someone in the company might have fill up their own private car and charged me for it.
This a warning for everyone who hires a car from a rental company is to be aware and maybe better to pay them cash instead of by credit card.
