GasBuddy Introduces New In-App Feature to Locate Air Pumps with CSC ServiceWorks
July 19th, 2023
Drivers can now easily and conveniently find tire air vending machines with the GasBuddy app
DALLAS, T.X., July 19, 2023 – GasBuddy, the leading fuel savings platform saving North American drivers the most money on fuel, today announced a new agreement with CSC ServiceWorks to raise awareness of the importance of properly inflated tires and make it easy for drivers to find air pumps directly in the GasBuddy app. CSC ServiceWorks is an industry leader of air vending services at convenience stores and gas stations as well as the leading provider of commercial laundry solutions to the multi-family housing and education markets with more than 1.4 million machines in service.
Through this partnership, drivers will be reminded of the importance of checking their tire pressure regarding driver safety and fuel efficiency and can easily use the GasBuddy app to locate and navigate to the nearest air pump when needed.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a tire 25% below its recommended pressure is three times as likely to be involved in a crash and a tire 25% higher than recommended pressure is twice as likely to be involved in a crash than properly inflated tires. Also, fuel efficiency drops by 0.4% for every 1-psi that tires are under-inflated.
“Adding the ability to locate air pumps reinforces GasBuddy’s commitment to help drivers save money on gas and take care of their vehicles to stay safe,” said Yannick Lord, Vice President of Product for GasBuddy. “GasBuddy isn’t just a gas-finding app anymore; it’s a well-rounded fuel savings platform that can help drivers save hundreds on vehicle-related costs.”
Particularly during warmer months when weather can be unpredictable and heat can increase tire pressure, it’s important that drivers monitor tire pressure monthly or before long road trips, and not solely rely on the vehicle’s electronic sensor that will only indicate if a tire is under-inflated.
“Partnering with GasBuddy has allowed our combined marketing efforts to reach millions of drivers to save them more at the pump and more importantly keep them safe behind the wheel,” said Dan Joyce, VP Consumer & Client Engagement, at CSC ServiceWorks. “The more convenient we can make the experience for air vending the more likely drivers are to take action and stay safe.”
To locate air pumps in their area, drivers should navigate to the “Find Gas” tab in the app and tap on the Station Details page. If the station offers air pumps, a button to activate will be available. Stations with air pumps can also be located by filtering the stations page by “Air”.
