You’re responsible for replacing the gas used during a trip with the appropriate fuel (i.e., regular, premium, supreme, or diesel). Similarly, you must recharge electric vehicles before returning them.
The best way to avoid disputes is to take pre- and post-trip photos of the fuel gauge and upload them as part of your check-in and checkout process. Get a receipt that documents your fuel costs and keep it for at least five days after the trip ends in case the host disputes the fact that you’ve refilled the fuel to its pre-trip level.
Hosts have up to 72 hours after a trip’s end to request reimbursement for fuel replacement and for the Tesla Supercharger and Idle fees.
Some hosts may offer prepaid refueling to you as an Extra. If this option is available, you may find it provides added convenience and peace of mind.
Tesla Supercharger and Idle Fee
Guests are responsible for any Supercharger and/or Idle fees incurred during their trip and up to 24 hours after the trip end if they’ve left the car plugged in at a charging station. You can read more about Tesla’s Supercharger fees here and Idle Fee policy here.
