The car's owner pays for all the fuel (gas, diesel or EV charging) that goes into the car. They're then reimbursed based on how far the borrower has driven and their distance rate.
Borrowers pay for the fuel they use through the distance charge.
Whoever is driving the car needs to make sure they leave it with at least a quarter tank of fuel – whether that's the car owner or a borrower.
If a borrower needs to fill up during their trip, they pay with their own money and upload a tax invoice for reimbursement. The amount they spent on fuel will be deducted from the final charge for the trip.
Any fuel the borrower purchases during a trip is charged to the owner in their monthly invoice, and offset by the distance earnings.
The pay-and-refund system:
- Provides more transparency — owners can see every tax invoice as it’s uploaded by a borrower and let us know if they notice any issues
- Gives us more oversight – we’ll check every tax invoice to make sure the borrower has purchased the right type and quantity of fuel
- Reduces out-of-pocket costs for borrowers - any amounts borrowers spend on fuel will be deducted from their trip charge so they aren't out of pocket while they wait for us to process the refund
