There is no rule to fill it up the fuel before dropping the scooter off.

Petrol for your scooter in Bali

Petrol is available in every small village at small shops.You will find the petrol in glass bottles or little pumps. But there are also many petrol stations on the main roads Filling up at petrol stations is usually cheaper than for private sellers.
