Health + Safety

Mobile Fueling is the Safest Way to Stay Fueled.

Our service is 100% contactless, so it naturally limits the contact with, and spread of, COVID-19. Looking at surface particulate helps us understand the density of bacteria on a given surface. It’s measured in Colony Forming Units, which quantify the ability of bacteria to colonize on different surfaces. Although bacteria isn’t a virus, this gives us an idea of the density of surface particles.

Certifications

When we formed Booster, we sat down with regulators to co-write the regulatory framework that has ensured safe mobile fueling operations locally, state-wide, nationwide and around the world. That philosophy has extended to our expansion as well. Whenever we enter a new market, we work with regulators before we pump a single ounce of fuel.

Booster meets or exceed all federal and local government requirements for fueling:

  • National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) requirements under NFPA-30A

  • Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and International Fire Code (IFC) requirements for on-demand mobile fueling

  • Department of Transportation (DOT) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

  • Advanced National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) certification

  • Meets federal DOT, EPA, Weights & Measures, and Air Resources standards

  • Equipped with an automatic shut off nozzle and a 30 gallon fuel limit switch so that no more than 30 gallons of gasoline may be dispensed at one time

  • Features impact guards that meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 223 requirements (49 CFR 571.223)

  • Fusion-welded, pressure-tested tanks with thermal protection sufficient to resist a pool fire for 100 minutes or a torch fire for 30 minutes (49 CFR 179.100-3, 179.100-18 & 179.18)

  • Overturn spill protection (NFPA 385)

Inspections

Our delivery trucks undergo eight regular, rigorous inspections, including:

  • A daily post-trip inspection for any day that the trucks are driven

  • A 78-point inspection every 30 days

  • An 85-point “Basic Inspection of Terminal” inspection every 90 days which includes brakes, steering, suspension, tires and wheels

  • Annual multi-level third party, DOT inspection

Another Way We Keep People Safe

In 2017 alone, low tire inflation caused 738 fatalities according to the NHTSA. It also costs consumers $300-$500 every year according to FuelEconomy.gov. That’s why Booster service professionals provide tire and inflation checks upon customer request. Tires are filled to vehicle manufacturer specification and checked for visible damage, nails and contusions.
