What’s the biggest nightmare you could ever have- when traveling to a place that’s too far away?
Your vehicle runs out of the fuel!
Your vehicle unfortunately stopped.
Your vehicle’s tire gets punctured.
Nothing is more disastrous than it if any of these things have happened in the mid-way, where there is no access to the services in the close vicinity.
One more point in the case: Frequent visits to the fuel station and long wait add a lot of inconvenience to the individuals, trucking companies, or office buildings.

You should make the choice prudently before selecting any service provider for getting your car tanks refilled every day or every week, depending on your need because the services delivered by every fuel delivery business vary greatly.
My two cents: Before you narrow down the choice to one fuel delivery business, you should check the availability (Time at which they serve you), the services they offer in addition to fuel delivery, and the overall fuel delivery price so that you never need to repent on the decision made.
