In a mobile age (and within our mobile industry) the concept of refuelling away from the forecourt appears to ‘have legs’.  So what is the likely future of this development and how will it practically apply to business and consumer environments?  Join Tuguy Dervish and Murray McDonald, Founder CEO and COO of fuelmii, respectively, for a fascinating insight into a brave new world, where fuel is delivered straight to your vehicle.
