Tankspitstop Fills 'Em Up


We are not sure how we missed this one but somehow it deserves a "better late than never" mention. Last year, Nico van Staveren, gas station owner, came up with a car fueling robotic arm that opens the cars gas cover and unscrews it, takes the fuel nozzle and fills up the car. Staveren claims that he was inspired by a robotic arm milking a cow. The "Tankpitstops" are in several Dutch stations that can afford the $111,100.00 price tag.
