Yoshi is a startup that allows people to avoid the gas station by scheduling an automatic gas date for their vehicle instead

According to San Francisco-based start-up Yoshi Inc., the average commuter spends about 10 hours each year at the gas station. The company wants to help drivers reclaim that time with its gas delivery business which allows customers to sign up for automatic refilling of their fuel tank.

Unlike an on-demand service in which consumers might pull up an app and order a gas refill on-the-go, Yoshi Inc.'s gas delivery business targets customers who leave their car in a designated area, such as their office or place of work for a large chunk of each day. The user selects a time when he or she would like to have Yoshi automatically refill the car with gas, allowing the company to craft the most efficient delivery routes, co-founder and CEO Nick Alexander told TechCrunch.
