Californians for Smart Fueling is a coalition of like-minded organizations throughout California that supports the safe advancement of the mobile fueling industry.
Mobile fueling prevents 2.2 vehicle miles traveled and 1.1 lbs of CO2 with every fill-up. Additionally, the more direct supply chain eliminates the need for ground-polluting underground storage tanks and trained pump handlers reduce the 4,000,000 gallons of gasoline spilled annually at self-serve gas stations.
The mobile fueling industry delivers a more accessible, reliable, and safer way to get fuel for those with mobility impairments who rely on vehicles.
It offers significant independence to older adults or people with disabilities by enabling them to forego issues presented at gas stations.
Gas station pump handles and buttons have more germs per square inch than the average toilet seat. Mobile fueling is the only 100% contactless way to fuel your vehicle, so it naturally limits the spread of viruses and bacteria.
Priced competitively and transparently, mobile fueling brings choice to a market that hasn’t traditionally offered it. The industry creates high-quality jobs, generates millions in tax revenues, and enables small businesses to save money and compete with their big-box counterparts.
Why we need accessible fueling
Our coalition is urging the California State legislature to allow mobile fueling as a smart alternative to traditional gas stations that offer more benefits to local communities, especially the millions of older adults and people with disabilities who are drivers in California. Remove the hurdles and offer them independence today!
As a coalition, we never stop improving and will continue to expand our offerings based on how we can best serve all Californians. Get in touch with us today to learn how Californians for Smart Fueling can help you.
