    Will they fill empty portable gas tanks too? Running low on gas for my mower too.

    • Tom

      Yes, just let us know where you are…happy mowing!

    The terms and conditions and privacy statement for the app are very peculiar. Peculiar in a way that they are not terms and conditions or privacy policy, but instead some philosophical essay on virtue or some such thing. I don’t know if they (the app developers) were intending to be humorous, or if they were hacked. I uninstalled the app, can’t trust them with my credit card info.

      @ReadTheFinePrint I downloaded the app last month and have used it 3 times already without incident, so I’m super excited to use it again at just $1.99. The reviews that I saw were great, so I would suggest you find something better to do with your time!

      • ReadTheFinePrint

        There are 2 reviews which are great. If you don’t mind installing apps without paying attention to the terms and conditions or the privacy statement, then I am glad it’s working for you.
        Regardless, I would suggest you read the fine print.

        • Fiona Liang

          Actually, I see 8 reviews in the app store! In addition, the reason why we use credit cards is for security. Unlike cash, which can be lost or stolen, if someone misuses my credit card ,then i just call the company and the charges are removed. I’ve never understood why people are even remotely protective about there credit card info, since the consumer is not liable for unauthorized purchases. The only person I can think of is my grandma and she just learned how to use the TV remote.

          • ReadTheFinePrint

            Fiona I assume you are an employee of the company (since you said “the reason why WE use credit cards…”).

            It’s a PITA to have unauthorized purchases reversed.

            There are two reviews for the android version.

            Your comments speak for themselves. I would never use your app since you are so willy nilly about my concerns for protecting my privacy and your terms and conditions to use the app are just completely bizarre.

            I think you need an attitude adjustment if you expect to be dealing with customers. Regardless, I wish your company good luck with the app and I wish them success.

          • Fiona Liang

            I said “WE” as in we – the general population of credit card users. Banks have protection plans for thier clients for a reason. I am not associated with the company in any way, I just felt that it’s silly to not trust a business that offers a service that allows me to save time (and has made my life so much easier), just because I feel that their privacy statement is “peculiar”.

            I don’t mean to have an attitude towards you, btw. Sorry if I came off that way. Just expressing my opinion. 🙂

    • Tom

      This is 2016, no applications hold credit card information. The payment platform is the same as Uber; Braintree, which is a Paypal company, the most trusted and secure name around!!! Like any other app, we never see you cc info…when you enter it, you are actually sending directly to PayPal. Our cc recognition technology is the same as what is used by most major banks (Bank of America, Chase, Wells Fargo, etc) when you deposit a check. Thank you @ReadTheFinePrint for the comment, but please try to make sure that you are up to speed with modern technology!

      • Guest

        Paypal is notorious for freezing accounts and keeping the money. Taking a look, there are growing complaints against Braintree for the same activity. I hope you’re using them for processing, and not banking.

  • Fiona Liang

    As a woman who hates to pump gas…this is awesome and the price is even better than Costco. I hope they keep doing this into the winter, so I can stay warm inside!

    To have a service that helps me with weekly choirs from my busy schedule, Gas-e definitely is extremely helpful. 10/10 I’d use it again

  • vdiv

    Have a better deal, get an electric car that you can charge at home and pay less than a dollar per gallon-equivalent anytime with no need for any deals. 🙂

    • Tom

      Not everyone can afford the steep premium price of electric cars!

      • vdiv

        Used electric cars can be had for very cheap. Also as alluded, the total cost of ownership is lower than a comparable gas car.

        • Greg

          What happens when the batteries need to be replaced?

          • vdiv

            What happens when an engine or a transmission needs to be replaced?

        • Greg

          There’s a tax credit (not deduction) available for installing a charger, and special less expensive electricity from Dominion for charging:

          https://www.dom.com/residential/dominion-virginia-power/ways-to-save/plug-in-electric-vehicles

          Congress has renewed the Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Tax Credit, which provides a tax credit of 30% of the purchase and installation cost of electric vehicle charging stations. The tax credit is valid for all 2016 installations and is retroactive for 2015 projects.

          Up to $1000 in savings for residential customers
          Up to $30,000 in savings per property

    How convenient – I’m traveling through Reston right now! Will get the app after lunch & see if they can come through with 8 gallons of gas by dinnertime 🙂

  • FoetusBlow

    Not to rain on this parade, folks, but what are the insurances for this company in case of any accidents that might occur either when transporting the gasoline and then pumping it into your vehicles or cans. If anything happened in your neighborhood or to your own vehicle, what are the liabilities covered? What are the guarantees as to the kind of gas and its’ quality being sold…there’s a very good reason that gasoline at stations is so heavily regulated against station owners who might not sell you what they are showing on the pump. Believe me, the last thing I’d like to do is over-regulate anything, but we’re talking about gasoline, people…hard to believe that I’m the only person who is even questioning this business…it would be of great benefit to those that need the service and probably a profitable venture by this company, but until these questions are answered, this seems to me to be crazy as a venture without the proper safety and insurance measures in place first…

  • Monique H. Vo

    I first heard about the app a week ago and have used it twice, and it has been so convenient! I was skeptical at first about whether or not they would be able to get to my car in a timely manner or if it would even be worth it but I have no doubts now! They are punctual and quick.

  • Why do you bother?

    Gee, I wonder how long before that “introductory” price doubles..

  • Bill Mosher

    So what is the fee they charge for the delivery? I checked out their site the other day and couldn’t find an exact dollar amount for how much the service costs. Is it a $2 fee or a $20 fee. Once I know the economics, I’ll give it a try.
