When it is the time to relinquish the car, I just go to the Shell petrol station where I took the car before and park at the designated location.
To end the ride, I was required to take photos of the right side and left side of the car and report the level of petrol left. There is no requirement how much petrol should I retain when relinquish the car. The finally action is to press END TRIP.
