DALLAS – In its first official partnership with a college campus, Booster Fuels is refueling staff and students at UT Dallas in what The Mercury calls “a service that costs just as much as filling up at a gas station.”
By using the Booster Fuels app, users can schedule an 800-gallon fuel truck to fill up their car between 6 am and 8 pm on weekdays.
“People have often referred to us as the Uber of gas, which is not a bad comparison,” Ryan Leech, director of sales and campus representative from Booster Fuels, told the news source.
The company’s presence is visible on campus, thanks to its bright purple trucks. “I love the convenience of being able to fill-up my car during classes; it’s made for one less thing I have to worry about in my day-to-day,” one student said.
As of now, Booster Fuels is only offering gasoline delivery, but plans to expand its services.
“In mid-February, probably at the latest, there will be add-on services that you can get like a windshield wash, tire shine, wiper replacement … as well as tire check and tire replacement,” Leech added.
Booster Fuels is also looking for expansion opportunities at other campuses. “We don’t want to be a flash in the pan. What we want to work toward is the phasing out of gas stations,” Leech told the news source.
