Booster isn’t only about convenience. It’s also about responsibly serving and improving our communities by delivering gas directly to the customer. Our 100% carbon-neutral mini tankers drive a supply chain that's simpler, with 50% fewer fuel transfers than a gas station, fewer vapor emissions and no ground-polluting underground fuel storage tanks. Conventional gas stations rely on underground storage tanks (USTs) for their gasoline reserves, which pose threats to fire safety and the drinking water supply. As of March 2020, there have been more than 550,000 confirmed leaks in USTs nationwide. These kinds of spills are hazardous for the environment, and also cost taxpayers tens of billions every year.
In the United States, an average of 40 gallons of gasoline is spilled annually at 160,000+ gas stations according to data scientists at Johns Hopkins University. That’s over 4 million gallons of gasoline spilled per year. To put that in perspective, that much gas could get you and your car around the world 8 times.
One of the keys to creating such a friendly environment is by hiring the right people. Booster’s service professionals are trained to avoid spillage and our fuel delivery vehicles cannot be overfilled.
Our unflinching promise to lessen the environmental impact of fuel runs deep. Our mini-tankers are clean air idle certified and 100% fully carbon offset, leaving zero carbon footprint.
Each time we deliver a tank of fuel, we:
Prevent Harmful Emissions
According to the data scientists at Geotab, every boost saves 2.2 driven miles. Furthermore, it saves 1.1 pounds of CO₂ emissions. That means we save tens of thousands of trips to the gas station every week, which translates to fewer miles driven, fewer gallons of gas burned and serious savings on vehicle wear and tear.
Reduce Volatile Organic Compounds
Booster reduces smog every time gas is delivered. For every 4 vehicles fueled, Booster takes the smog emissions of one car off the road.
Eliminate Underground Spillage
Booster doesn't use underground storage tanks, so there's zero risk of our fuel ever finding its way into the soil or water supply.
