    Yesterday, I received a Jaguar ICE loaner and they didn’t mention to fill it up and on the Hertz rental agreement there is no mention of it other then declining the pre-paid Fuel option.

    What have folks done in the past? Does Tesla pick up the fuel costs considering we are supposed to be driving EV’s and not spending money on fuel?

    Electricity is fuel, gas is a more expensive fuel.

    I would fill it so you don't screw the next person but bring receipts on return and ask what the policy is without being entitled and demanding about it.

    Just had an ICE loaner. They specifically told me to bring it in dry. No need to fill it up before returning the vehicle. I did not ask about reimbursement if I filled it up, since I knew I wouldn't be using enough to empty the tank. However, it doesn't hurt to ask.

    Echoing others on here -- the Decatur (Atlanta) service center told me no need to put gas in it.

    Why are you filling your car with farts? Maybe I'm not understanding what "gas" is because I've never owned an ICE and Tesla highland Park never does ice loaners ;)
