When they measure the tank in eighths of a tankful, you should see that they round down when marking a fuel level between eighths at the start of the rental because they will almost certainly round down when marking the fuel level at return time.

If they say that the car is full when the gauge reads 3/4 then the fuel level should be marked as what the gauge says, namely 3/4.

I do remember a time when Alamo required prepurchase of gas, i.e. that was the only way they did things. Back then it was advertised as "approximately a half tankful". This was long before the merger with National.
Last Disney trip: December 2010.
Today's riddle: Q: Why are there these 20 foot timber or stucco walls between the freeway and people's back yards? A: So people living there don't put up huge Christmas light displays and distract passing motorists.
