A new app is being introduced in the U.S which will enable residents to have petrol delivered straight to their cars.
‘Filld’ will be available to people in the Silicon Valley and sends a truck equipped with a petrol pump to the user’s vehicle.
The lorry would then fill up the person’s car for the average petrol price in the area, in addition to a $7 delivery fee.
All the user has to do is tell the app where their car is and ensure the fuel door is unlocked. They pay for the service directly on the app.
Speaking to the Daily Dot, company CEO Scott Hempy said:
We believe that the impact of reducing the brick and mortar need of the refueling industry can change the way consumers think about refueling and positively impact all parties involved.
(We) believe that expansion of a model that can radically change the gasoline industry is one that people nationwide will find interesting and be excited to use as we scale.
The location of the Filld company is not yet specified though, so it’s unclear how long it could take for the truck to reach a user.
The fuel taking ages to arrive would sort of defeat the point of this app but, then, if you’re too hungover to make it to the petrol station, users may not care about the wait.
