Does anyone use a reputable and competitive car hire firm from Malaga Airport who still offer  "a pay for what you use fuel policy" ?

Most firms now charge you circa 40 - 45 euros for a FULL tank of fuel for any rental of 3 days or more, and you are supposed to bring the car back empty. 

I have always used Record Rentacar ( 6-8 times a year). They are normally very competitive priced and I have been happy with them until  6 months ago when they changed their policy on fuel. 

Once I get to my apartment we only drive locally and I end up always returning the car with at least a half tank at the end of my trip. I have complained but with no success. It seems that most car hire firms now use this method as it makes them lots of extra money.

Your'e lucky.  I got upgraded without notice as no other cars were available and ended up paying 81 Euro's.  ( 60 litre capacity)

I made sure I used it all but this is a big rip off as you can never take the car back empty.

We always use Helle Hollis.  Very competitive on price - particularly if you join their Home Owners Club - and they refund you unused petrol to the nearest quarter of a tank.  No problems with them at all and we go so often the staff now recognise us and greet us by name!

Just checked out Helle Hillis for my visit in Sept and they are far more expensive than Holiday Auto's.  Thats the problem you get on one hand and give with another.  Its probably better just to look at the total cost and take it from there.
