The 'Filld' App Circumvents Gas Stations for Drivers

Aside from any pangs of guilt that environmentally concerned drivers might feel as a result of making frequent stops at the gas station, it's also just plain inconvenient to keep refilling, which is a problem the Filld app is hoping to solve. The startup app, currently available in San Francisco and Silicon Valley, offers gas delivery through their smartphone interface.

The Filld app's process is simple. First, users drop a pin on their car's exact location on the app's map. Next, users select a delivery window that works (i.e. a time when they know they won't be using their car.) Finally, users just need to pop the gas cap on their vehicle before that delivery window opens, and that's that. A gas delivery truck will bring gas to the users vehicle and fill it up, and the Filld app will charge for the amount of gas used, plus a very small service charge of about $3.

The Filld app employs Uber-esque tech to simplify users' driving experiences.
