SEATTLE—Booster Fuels is taking its mobile gas delivery service nationwide, starting with adding Seattle to its locations, Geek Wire reports. Chief Fueling Officer Frank Mycroft targets corporate campuses for the service, with companies like eBay, Cisco, HPE, health clubs and retail centers providing it as an employee perk.
Booster Fuels already operates in San Diego, Los Angeles, the Bay Area and Dallas-Fort Worth, but Seattle is where Mycroft, along with Diego Netto and Tyler Raugh, first got the idea for the company. “Seattle holds a special place in our history,” he said.
Booster Fuels only services vehicles on private property, rather than taking fuel directly to consumers. “There’s a lot of work we do at the local level that explains what we do, and frankly how it’s better than other models out there,” Mycroft said. The company also offers ancillary services, such as changing tires and washing windshields.
The company is one of several on-demand fueling operations, including Yoshi and Filld, that have cropped up over the past few years.
