http://www.usatoday.com/travel/news/2008-08-04-small-rental-cars-downsize_N.htm?csp=Travel I read this article,and the part about the Guy who booked a Smaller car,and got upgraded to a Hummer,with the result his fuel bill equalled his rental cost! Has anything like this happened to You recently,or before? Are Rental places running out of economical cars with current fuel prices the way they are? Would you take a Thirstier car than the one You booked,or go elsewhere if You could? (There's a Gas Station Sign Avatar pic on there that I like!) Thanks for responses!

I've never rented out a car before but when I go away next year we are doing so and if we got upgraded for free I wouldn't mind as long as it wasn't loads bigger as I would not want to pay the higher fuel costs! x

I've only rented a few times so far,(The last time was over 10 Years ago!) and there was never a problem with the availability of the car..The only trouble I ever had (Waaay Back!) was being embarrassed when the Woman at the counter questioned my old style folding license as not being Legit!
