Which is why I added a bunch of tags after describing what it does rent...

Some rental places offer cars, vans, trucks etc, it's much better to
use a form similar to what I wrote earlier.

This is analogous to amenity=fuel and then listing the types of fuel
sold in separate key/value pairs. We don't tag it as amenity=lpg_fuel.
