Sky Harbor International Airport Rental Car Center is less than two miles from the Phoenix airport terminals. Everyone at the airport is transported by a free shuttle to and from the Rental Car Center. The process is not always met with patron love. Maybe you should leave a little extra time? Also, when returning your car, it might not be obvious where to fill up your tank with gas, since the rental car center is in a mostly industrial area.
Here is a map of gas stations close by.

Notes about Online Maps: If you see a car rental company referenced as being right at the airport location on an online mapping service, it is out of date because that's not true.
There are no car rental areas at the airport itself. They have all been moved offsite to the Car Rental Center.
Did you lose something at the Sky Harbor Rental Car Center or on one of the shuttles? If it was more than a day or so ago then it was probably transferred to the airport's Lost and Found Department.
