NORTHAMPTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / January 17, 2023 / Since the beginning of motor vehicle travel, drivers have had virtually no choice but to patronize the gas station. Despite them being dirty and often unsafe, they remain a legacy staple of the transportation industry. But this may not be the case for long.

As the booming mobility retail industry has brought delivery to sectors from fashion to literature to groceries, consumers have grown accustomed to the convenience of goods and services meeting them where they are. With Booster’s mobile fuel delivery service, this trend now extends to fleet fueling. Where once fleets were reliant on a model requiring each driver to take individual trips to the gas station, mobile fuel delivery offers a more flexible, efficient system in which service professionals bring fuel directly from the terminal to the fleet yard to fill vehicles in their non-operating hours.

For many, making the switch is a no-brainer. But for those fleet managers who need a bit more convincing, here are three reasons your fleet should abandon the gas station.

There is a reason gas stations stink and look dirty: they’re significant polluters. All too often we hear news of the many fuel leaks and spills from gas stations, which contaminate community drinking water and poison nearby waterways. According to the Environmental Law Institute, a typical gas station dispensing one million gallons per year would see annual spillage of 70 to 100 gallons. For a large-volume gas station like Costco, which can sell around 20 million gallons of gasoline per year, spillage could reach 2,000 gallons annually.

Another source of spills, leaks and air pollution at gas stations are underground storage tanks (USTs), which store fuel below the surface.
