You can refuel both in cash and in plastic. Always fill up to full – it’s easier than explaining how much you need. In addition, in the United States gallons, not liters. The process of refueling is this: you go into the store (there are almost all the refueling with the store) you call the column, leave money (50-100 bucks) or plastic and go to refuel. Then you come back and get the change or sign the check. You can refuel for example 10, 15, 20 dollars – this is how you please.
In addition, there are gas stations with a built-in terminal. I drove up, ran the map, and chose the right kind of Benz (hose on all one) and refuel. But in this case, one dollar is charged for authorizing the card, and then the rest. If I could not refuel the first time (I had this at night in Death Valley), we can assume that the dollar was donated to the owner of the gas station. Of course, there is a monitor with tips, but … So if there is a payment option through a cashier, it is better to use it, although when you get used to it, then the card is much more convenient and easier.
Even on some gas stations, near the columns there are buckets with a solution and a brush for wiping glasses. A very convenient and necessary thing, because there are no rags in the cabin in order to wipe the glass in case something happens (although this is of course a bother, and there are often napkins). Speaking of dubious things … DO NOT LEAVE a car under a tree or a lantern on the embankment. With me there were two cases. First, when I left the car at the outlet near the tree. Not much, but the birds did their job and on the front and side windows were unpleasant swept away. And if from the windshield it is all washed off by the “wipers”, then a gas station has helped out from the side, since it was just necessary to go to refuel.

But the second time … Reaching Santa Barbara, I was looking for parking along the waterfront. Seeing the free space, he quickly took it, not even paying attention to the fact that it was near the post. To say that a gull poked at the car is to say nothing!!! Auto so about … whether that if it were not with a wet wipes, I had to go buy them! Handles, doors, roof, hood, glass – EVERYTHING!!! There was no time to call in to the car wash and I frantically recalled the English words and thought out how to explain to me why I rent a car in this way! BUT…
After the trip
The process of taking the car takes a couple of minutes and, if it happens at a point near the airport, the shuttle takes you to the desired terminal (the driver specifies who flies what flight and announces the desired terminal on arrival). Nobody will particularly consider the car itself. They will look at the mileage and performance of the instrument panel, consider the bar code, look into the salon so that you do not forget things and wish you a happy journey. Dirty car (see above, the gulls tried …) handed over, no one said a word. Then several times he drew attention to the fact that the Arabians do not even throw out paper wrappers, paper and other garbage from it. With me, people handed over the car, and on the floor of the front passenger seat there was a dump – pieces of paper, some boxes, one and a half … No questions asked. Specify whether you left things and pick up the car, and you wish a happy journey. This is how this process happens.
And then, got on the shuttle and to the airport for registration.
