When your getting a Getz or another small car the gas burns quicker then a mazda 3 class but if your getting a mazda 2 or even an accent the gas is the same or by a mazda 2 maybe a drop less then a mazda 3. And that is if you happen to get a mazda 3.

Or ask me, if in a nice and not too busy mood.

I see that the guys here confirm what I wrote earlier on the forum.

Mazda 3 level burns less than Cat below.

Even the big cars don't seem to burn more than a mazda 3, such as volvo S80, mercedes E200.

Like all American cars... I once drove a Chevy Uplander from J-m to BB and barely made it on one tank ...

 your 2 last posts would be like me posting the following

a) I found a fare of $213 out of NY for Weds back on Fri can I get it any cheaper

 or b) Found a Hotel with a rate of $99 in California are their any cheaper Hotels

 in other words NOT enough info , missing would be cat of car, your age , do U have a WMC

 that said usually rentals for under 3 days cost alot more per day, if I were you Id rely on what U got since by the time anyone here can find things out tommorrow and get back to you it will very late tommorrow

I just got very good rates on a Avis rental from a Frum business in Lakewood    732-903-4808

They got me $48 for a 2 day rental on Sukkos in Jerusalem for a Goetz.

Im not familiar with those terms. They said that rate includes insurance if I have a World MC and if not it will be another $5 a day (total $58).  They said bec. I am a tourist I don't have to pay any tax.

I booked 9/19-9/21 and 9/26-9/28 and got the same rate for each.

I didn't look around yet but I'm assuming this is the best rate I'll get esp. bec. its Sukkos!

In Israel there are 2 insurances that you are forced to get.
Collision damage waiver: Covered by most World Mastercards, otherwise you need to purchase this.
Liability: Everyone needs to purchase this unless your rate specifically includes it already.

So $48 covers liability and $58 covers liability and collision

I just rented in Israel (Eldan) and I was told that the CDW included has a 1700 Shekel deductible (which I refused cuz I paid with WMC, it knocked off 25 shekel a day or approx 8 dollars) For no deductible they wanted more.

renting cars from ben gurion airport these days is a disaster especially if your travelling with kids. they moved all the car rental companys off site. and when i say off site i mean 15 min drive away. and to add insult to injury the bus that comes to collect arriving passangers comes about every 15 min aswell. and it drives through the entire terminal to pick up any ppl who rented a car form any of the car rental companies. unless you have avis preffered they will come and deliver the car to you. if you book through an agent of shlomo sixt you can very often get a good price. recently ive been renting with a company called tamir they have very good prices during the high peak seasons so they must be good even during the off peak. aswell they do not have a airport location so all the paper work is done via email you send them your drivers licsense passport and credit card and they prepare all the paper work in advance. when you arrive they are holding up a sign for you with your name apeearing on it . they BRING the car to you which is a incredible advantage ! and then you just sign off and your set to go !! they are an excellent and easy company to deal with.

 Sounds to me like you are describing any other airport anywhere in the World, as most have their car rental facilities away from the main terminals. And more and more like ONT,LAS,PHX etc have a dedicated building for it where 1 also needs to get on a generic shuttle car rental bus, so TLV is simply falling into line with what can be found elsewhere.

I do agree its a pain
