I think we can agree the gas pump handle is pretty disgusting. So it got me thinking… Is there a technology out there that could fully automate the refueling of your car, so you don’t even have to get out? Something where you just pull up and it does all the work for you without touching anything?
Turns out, there’s an app for that.
This is the Fuelmatics 5000, brought to you by the Swedish company Fuelmatics. This fully-automated technology allows you to drive your car up to the pump, use an application on your phone to pick the type of gasoline you want and make your payment. Then, the robot opens your gas cap, fuels your car, and closes the cap. You get a receipt via the app and drive away. You don’t have to touch anything.
