Interested in filling up your car with gas at home soon?

A California based tech startup wants to let motorists fuel their vehicles anywhere, anytime with the use of an app, instead of driving to a gas station. The mobile fuel service call Filld has partnered with car2go to deliver gas to the car share company's Vancouver fleet. Since the beginning of this month, Filld has had 2 drivers and 2 half ton pick up trucks equipped with fuel storage tanks and pumps refuelling car2go vehicles across the city.

Filld officials say the company delivers gas to vehicles day or night, at work or at home, so motorists never have to hunt for a gas station. 

With all the announcements of gas stations dissappearing in Vancouver it is suggested that this will create a problem for many drivers. Vancouver is one of the cities that meets the right traffic density, fuel scarcity, supply and demand curves.

Filld hopes its test case with car2go will expand to all Vancouver motorists by the end of the year. Customers use an app to identify the location of their vehicle and schedule a delivery time. The company's web page says the price of gas is matched to the lowest of the gas stations to where the vehicle is parked, but there is a service fee. The typical charge is $3 US but can fluctuate between free and $8 US depending on the time of day. In Vancouver, delivery fees will be paid for by car2go in keeping with its policy that the price to rent vehicles includes gas and insurance.

A city of Vancouver spokesperson say Filld asked for a business licence in May. As part of a review process, the city has asked for a detailed description of spill kits in Filld delivery trucks and a copy of its spill management plan. The application is still under review.

The Filld truck delivers gas right to your vehicle anytime, anywhere 24/7.
