This is perhaps how science touches your life. The Tankpitstop, is a robotic arm which opens the fuel cap and actually fills your tank. You needn’t get out of the car. The robot is pre-programmed to know your car, and the fuel it requires through an RFID sticker. The sensors, tell you where to stop, and the robot does the rest.

So you needn’t get out of your car, waste precious drops of fuel, or tip the station attendant. There is however no mention on how these electronics work in a fumey environment, given that we are not allowed to operate cell phones, or leave the engine running when we are at a gas station.
