Javi Noble’s ‘VIP’ gas stations become real!By Fernanda Duque Hernández
Gas Delivery… To save you the trouble!
If you ever watched the Mexican movie We Are the Nobles (Nosotros los Nobles, 2013), you might remember –after a few laughs-, about the protagonist’s (Javi Noble) crazyidea, somewhere along the lines of a VIP Gas Station… Does it ring a bell? Well, you’ll be very glad and surprised to hear that the mere idea, has in fact transcended and turned into a reality!
One day, Scott Hempy was riding his car when he realized he was running low on gas… This led him to thing that if the presidential air plane can be refueled in the air, why can’t a car do the same? This is how he created Filld: a company that fills your car with gasoline anywhere you are.
And the best part of it all is that it’s as simple as ABC… All you have to do is: download an app to your mobile device, introduce the info about you type of vehicle and indicate where you are; next, press the delivery button, unlock your gas cap and some minutes after, a truck will be filling your tank!
This could be a fantastic idea, maybe not for and everyday use, but definitely under some circumstances. This is a brand new startup that can definitely take you out of a problem, especially when you live in a busy and hectic city, where taking a brief detour to fill up your gas, can take hours!
The surcharge for this ‘VIP’ service is $7 USD. However, and for the time being, Filld is operating only in the nearby neighborhoods at the south of Silicon Valley which are: Palo Alto, Menlo Park and Redwood City.
