Need on demand Fuel? New Dubai app delivers petrol to your car
Is this the future?
A new Dubai app called Cafu now allows you to get fuel delivered to your car wherever you are. This is something we have all thought of but never thought it would ever happen. Well it has done in Dubai, and of course it would be Dubai.
The new petrol delivery app was updated last month and now supports anyone who is in the need of quick or emergency fuel. You'll be surprised how many people run out of fuel because they are not paying attention to their fuel gauge, this is one way to fix this I guess.
This is the fuel truck, not too ugly....
The service delivers Super 98 and Special 95 fuel right to your fuel filler cap. This is great way to please road users in Dubai as despite there being lots of cars, there aren't enough petrol stations so with this, it may reduce the queue time. Although, people are then just going to clog up this service. I guess we will have to see how it goes!
“Our objective is to always charge you the same amount you’d pay at any of the petrol stations for regular and premium petrol, along with a small delivery fee,” Cafu said. Customers will be charged Dh18 (£4) for each delivery.
The per-litre prices are Super 98 at Dh2.25 (48p), E-plus 91 at Dh2.05 (43p) and Special 95 at Dh2.15 (45p). Oh yeah, and if you didn't know already, fuel in Dubai is very cheap!
If you do find yourself in Dubai with no fuel, it's very simple to use the app.
1. Enter the location of your vehicle
2. Leave your fuel tank unlocked
3. Schedule a time for the refuelling
It's that simple!
