Drive-thru refueling involves a robot automatically filling a vehicle while the driver remains inside. Fuelmatics created the world's first ARS system. The third generation of technology will be on display at the Husky Corporation booth at the PEI Convention at the NACS Show in Atlanta. The Fuelmatics system reduces fueling time by 30 percent providing a faster customer experience and increasing fuel throughput for retailers at the same time.
Here's how it works. Fuelmatics developed advanced robotics technology that readily locates a vehicle’s fuel door and opens it after a customer pulls into an ARS location. Husky engineers utilized venturi components to develop a spout that extends into the vehicle’s fuel neck through a cap-less insert, which are increasingly common in new vehicles. The ARS system refuels the vehicle to the desired tank level thanks to a vacuum-based automatic shut-off system included in the Husky design.

“This is forward-looking technology. We are pleased to work with Fuelmatics to develop the nozzle that will make automatic refueling a genuine reality,” said Husky Corporation Executive Vice President Brad Baker.
“No one likes to refuel. It's a necessity. But our product eliminates some of the hassle. It’s faster, cleaner, more convenient, and more environmentally friendly with no vapor or spill at all,” said Sten Corfitsen, Fuelmatics founder. “The Fuelmatics system makes self-service refueling obsolete.”
The Fuelmatics system is an attractive marketing option for current high-volume fuel retailers. It also offers advantages for marketers seeking to stand out in locations where fueling stations are highly concentrated by offering a unique refueling experience, speed, and value.
