SAN FRANCISCO — The latest target for disruption by the tech industry: gas stations.
In San Francisco on Monday, smartphone app Filld began dispatching drivers with pickup trucks loaded with gasoline to fill people's tank. A Filld customer sets the exact location of his or her car, chooses a delivery window and releases the gas flap. A driver arrives in a small truck, pops open the gas tank and fills it with regular or premium unleaded gas. Filld charges per-gallon rates comparable to nearby stations and tacks on a delivery fee.
