Keep a loved one fueled up
So, this app feature was discovered by actual app users. The app development team at Rhodes really didn’t plan on this one. Families with teenagers, college students, and spouses who forget their wallets realized they can help their loved one fuel up without physically meeting them at Rhodes. Here’s how it works:
- The family member sitting on “E” just contacts the app user.
- The app user enters the Rhodes location and pump number where their loved one is parked.
- The app user opts to fill up their tank or keep the driver-in-need on a budget by setting a specific fill amount.
- Finally, the app user initiates fueling from wherever they are.
- Following these steps allows one family member to stay on the road and the other to stay on the couch. Download the Rhodes app now and protect your family against the dangers running on empty.
Be ready for the call to help a loved one. Download the Rhodes app. You can collect from them later.
