Imagine you could know when the price of petrol was due to increase ahead of time? FillApp can now tell you, among other things!
The petrol price in South Africa has its moments of volatility. At times, it seems like it will never stop increasing, and then it drops and holds steady for a while, and then the inevitable price increase begins again.

Introducing FillApp

If the thought of rushing to the nearest petrol station (and sitting in a queue of what feels like hundreds of others who have had the same idea as you) to fill your tank before the price increases is less than appealing, then FillApp is for you. Locally developed by TouchFoundry, FillApp tells you when the petrol price is increasing or decreasing, thereby helping you decide when the best time is to fill up your tank.

How Does It Work?

When opening the app for the first time, you are asked three questions:
  1. Where you live (coastal or inland)
  2. Which type of fuel your car uses
  3. What size petrol tank your car has
FillApp Questions Once you've answered these three questions, you're ready to go. FillApp works by using information available on agency and government websites to predict prices changes.

“The aim here was to develop something simple, intuitive, and unobtrusive” says co-creator Fabio Longano. “Apps have become an integral part of our lives, but many of them don’t take the consumer into account. FillApp has been designed to fit seamlessly into your day-to-day, empowering locals to save money.”

FillApp is available for both Android and iOS.
