Now, filling your vehicle’s fuel tank will be just as easy as placing an online food order. In a novel initiative, an Indian Oil outlet at Thoppumpady here has started delivering fuel to customers in various residential flats and commercial establishments as part of the effort to reduce the risk of virus transmission. At present, the outlet delivers only diesel, but soon petrol too will also be provided.
“This is the first time in the state that a fuel outlet has come up with such a move. The dispensing machine is similar to the ones found at retail outlets and it has a display unit showing the fuel quantity output and price and at the end of the transaction an automated invoice will be generated,” said George Mathew, owner of the outlet.
