#1646: Loyaltyre

I’m always incensed, after paying £60 for a tank of fuel, to find that the garage airline either doesn’t work, or tries to charge me for using it (20p used to be bad enough but it’s now 50p ‘minimum vend’ -inflation?)

Does anyone carry a variety of change in their vehicle?

No wonder large numbers of people are driving around on under-inflated tyres.

Today’s invention is a simple modification to the air machine on forecourts. It’s a reader, embedded in the compressor housing, which can recognise how many points are on your loyalty card, once inserted, and dispense air accordingly.

This would be another reason to visit a particular supermarket garage and it would also make driving a bit less hazardous for everyone.
