Mobile fueling is more than a convenience.
Booster has proven to offer significant help to older adults and people with disabilities who drive.
Mobile Fueling is the Most Accessible Way to Stay Fueled.
For People With Disabilities
The 61 million Americans with disabilities may find it difficult or impossible to use the controls, hose or nozzle of a self-serve gas pump. As a result, at stations that offer both self and full service, people with disabilities might have no choice but to purchase the more expensive gas from a full-serve pump. At locations with only self-serve pumps, they might be unable to purchase gas at all.
As a matter of fact, without accessible pumps, up to 15 million drivers with disabilities would either have to pay more at the full-serve pumps where available or not be able to buy gas at all at fully self-serve stations.
For Older Adults
The Department of Transportation cites mobility and transportation as a major impediment to our aging communities. By 2050, they estimate the American 65+ population to more than double to 88.5 million.
The mobile fueling industry delivers a more accessible, reliable, economical and safer way for older adults to fuel their vehicles. Completely contactless, these members of our communities can forego issues presented at gas stations, such as handling the heavy and germ-laden pump handles, by having fuel brought directly to their vehicles. For the same cost as a self-service tank of gas, industry leader Booster Fuels deploys a superior fuel delivery system backed with cutting-edge industry technologies and run by licensed and trained service professionals.
Following the COVID-19 pandemic, assisted and independence-promoting living centers across the country need mobile fueling for their transportation programs to keep caretakers and their older adult patrons safe and healthy.
