PTT has unveiled its new “Fill & Go” electronic pump system, where the system features Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) which is compatible only with vehicles with special rings attached to its fuel pumps. Microchips located inside the ring will record all the necessary information related to the user’s refueling habits, the kind of gasoline used, and even license plate numbers. PTT has a goal set for 200 stations to be installed with the gadget by the end of 2014.
