A specialist app that makes refuelling easier for disabled drivers has been adopted by Motor Fuel Group (MFG), the second largest independent forecourt operator in the UK with 424 stations.
The fuelService app helps the driver find a local petrol station and asks them if they will be able to assist before they drive there.
Once at the petrol station the driver can use the app to tell the petrol station they have arrived and which pump they are at, making them easy to spot.
The driver is told via the App how long the attendant will be before they come out to help, so they are not sat waiting in hope.
Andy Edwards, MFG’s HSE manager who has been responsible for the network rollout said: “We are pleased to be supporting this great app as latest figures suggest that over 648,000 people use Motability vehicles.”
The fuelService app is one of several similar solutions which have been developed to make refuelling easier for disabled drivers.
Companies have spotted a gap in this part of the market and are looking to capitalise on the increasing number of Motability drivers in the UK. Many major service station operators have also recognised the benefits of such systems and some have entered into talks with providers to secure deals.
