Instructions for cleaning
1. You are responsible for bringing the vehicle back in the same condition that you received it.
2. If the car requires cleaning, you may either take it to one of the car wash locations listed below for a free-to-you cleaning or you may have it cleaned at any car wash of your chosing at your own cost. We can also wash the car for you for a flat fee of $50.
3. If you do chose to have the car taken to a wash of your choice, make sure that it is a reputable commercial operation. DO NOT clean the car yourself or take it to one of those high-school or church fundraising car washes. Also, no automatic washes. They WILL scratch the paint and you will be responsible for any damage that is caused.
4. You may have the car cleaned for free (to you) at one of the locations listed above.
5. Go to one of the above locations. If you are returning to the airport, the Downtown location is probably best for you. If you are returning to the vehicle location or coming from north of San Diego, the Mission Valley location is probably best for you.
6. Be sure to allow yourself plenty of time, especially during busy hours. You should shoot for having the car cleaned the day before the return date or 1 - 2 hours prior to the drop off time.
7. Go to the location and tell them you are using a GotCarWash membership. Request the Limited Full Service. The member holder name is Lucas Altic. The member ID is the same as the license plate number (7UUF760).

See the "Instructions for Refueling" section below.
Instructions for Refueling
1. Bring the car back with the same fuel level as when you received it. This is always the best option.
2. If you are unable to replace the fuel, notify me at least 2 hours in advance, the longer the better.
3. Purple offers three fuel quantity options, 7.5, 10, and 15 gallons. This means you will be charged for one of those quantities depending on how muich fuel you used. So, for example, if you used 7 gallons, you will be charged for 7.5. If you used, 8 gallons, you will be charged for 10. The Corolla tank holds 15 gallons, so 15 gallons will fill it from empty, 10 will fill it from 2/3 of a tank, and 7.5 gallons will fill it from half a tank.
4. The maximum 3rd party fueling fee you will be charged is $9.99 (this is a Purple cost passed on to you). The lowest fee is $3.99 and is based on how soon the fuel is needed. What you are charged will depend on how much notice you give me, when you bring the vehicle back, and when the guest after you is scheduled to pick up the car. I will always make every attempt to ensure the lowest cost to you. But rest-assured that this fee will be no greater than $9.99 and will likely be lower. Fees are in addition to the actual fuel cost which is based on Purple pricing.
