the scarcest commodity in Nigeria, the length of queues at the few
petrol stations that are selling is eye boggling, because of this the

creator of the FueledUp app seeks to make sure you never stop for fuel
again. FueledUp which will launch in May, desires to deliver fuel
straight to its users, starting from Lagos. According to Owo-Odusi,
“This will take away a lot of the pain and pressure and stress of people
waiting for hours.”
This is how it works. First, download the app on your device. On the
app there will be a “Get FueledUp” button that displays the price of
fuel per liter. Fill in the quantity of fuel you need, your vehicle
information and the delivery time frame. You will be charged the cost of
fuel plus a service charge for delivery.
The delivery time frame is in three variants: PRIORITY which delivers in 30 minutes to an hour, EXPECTANT which promises delivery in 30 minutes to two hours, and FLEXIBLE which has a three-hour guarantee. According to Owo-Odusi, “Delivering on time, in traffic-laden Lagos, is the major priority”.
“Whether at home, lunch, or work, we’ve got you covered,” says FueledUp.
