The following section is a statement from the rental agreement at a local auto rental agency. “Upon checkout, the fuel level of the vehicle will be determined by turning the vehicle on and visually inspecting the fuel gauge. The approximate fuel level will be recorded on the Check-Out sheet and verified with initials by the vehicle Renter. One copy of the Check-Out sheet will be given to the customer. Another copy will be kept with the on-site records of the vehicle. The rented vehicle must be returned with a minimum fuel level the same as that indicated on the Check-Out sheet. A vehicle returned with a fuel level less than the approximate level indicated on the Check-Out sheet will be completely refueled with on-site pumps. The price of the fuel used to refuel the vehicle will be added to the Renter’s total charge at a cost of $4.50 per gallon plus a $5.00 re-fueling charge.” According to the rental agreement, which is not a responsibility of the rental agency representative? a. Refuel the vehicle before the Renter drives it away. b. Turn on the vehicle and visually inspect the fuel gauge. c. Record the approximate fuel level on the Check-Out sheet. d.
