YOU’LL soon be able to fill up the gas tank at your favorite shopping centerâ€”while you’re buying the groceries.
A portable gasoline service station, which can also be used at airports, resorts, or parking lots, is now being tested in several states by American Petrofina Co.
Each unit consists of a modified golf cart which hauls two pumps containing 100 gallons of premium and 200 gallons of regular gas. It also holds an air compressor tank, motor oil, battery and radiator water, and windshield cleaning materials.
