Motor Fuel Group (MFG) adopts fuelService App across its UK network

Hertfordshire, UK, 2017-Oct-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — Motor Fuel Group (MFG) is pleased to announce that it is adopting the revolutionary fuelService App across its 422-strong company station UK network.

Once at the petrol station the driver can use the App to tell the petrol station they have arrived and which pump they are at, making them easy to spot. The driver is told via the App how long the attendant will be before they come out to help, so they are not sat waiting in hope.

Andy Edwards (pictured), MFG’s HSE manager who has been responsible for the network rollout said: “We are pleased to be supporting this great App as latest figures suggest that over 648,000 people use Motability vehicles.

The App can be download from http://fuelservice.org/getapp or by searching for ‘fuelservice’ on your devices app store.
