As we’re nearing a return vacation to Las Vegas, our flight leaves later this morning, in fact, we’re checking out the Las Vegas scene.
Apparently the MGM casino and resort, the largest on the strip, has cut a curious marketing deal with a company.
Enter Fuelster. Cool name for an app. Apparently while you’re vehicle is in the parking garage, you can pay Fuelster an extra 50 cents a gallon to stop by and fill up your tank.
That’s where Fuelster, an application-based gas fill-up provider that offers on-site service, hopes to be of assistance. Simply leave your gas tank door open in the parking garage, and one of the service’s technicians will drive by with a fuel truck and do the rest. Fuelster recently entered into a marketing agreement with MGM Resorts International to provide their service at the 10 MGM properties on the Strip.Fuelster app aims to fill a niche, and your gas tank, on the Las Vegas Strip – VEGAS INC
Unfortunately, the first review from January 2021 we read says a customer tried the app and waited 15 hours for a fill-up that never came.
Sure sounded like a good idea to refuel a rental car while the car was there, apparently there are some issues.
Imagine while you are watching a movie at a theater having a service come and fill up your tank? Then again, we’ll probably be using electric or non-gas combustible engine cars in the not too distant future.
Guess we’ll we’ll just go the traditional method and visit one of the many, many Vegas area gas stations.
