Don't know about you, but when I finally get a car that does all the driving for me, I'm going to become very lazy, very fast. Which means I'll be super unhappy every time my car needs a fill-up. Think about it: I will have to haul my butt out of the car and fill the tank myself. The horror!
But you know what? It turns out my fears are groundless. Because Husky Corporation and Fuelmatics AB have collaborated on a — you guessed it — automatic refueling system:
Kidding aside, this system could be of benefit long before autonomous vehicles become ubiquitous. According to Husky, it can cut 30% off the time it takes to refuel, so gas stations could sell more gas in the same amount of time, and with fewer lineups.
Also, this could be just the thing for any region where winter has the upper hand — virtually all of Canada, for instance. If you're ever stepped out of your car in -30 C temperatures to gas up, you know of which I speak.
