Car manufacturer Chevrolet and oil giant Shell are rolling out a system that lets drivers pay for their gas through the touchscreen in their vehicle without using a card or mobile device.
When drivers of eligible Chevys fuel up at participating Shell-branded stations, they will be able to press the Shell icon within the carmaker's Marketplace commerce platform on their dashboard.
They will then pick the correct station and, after a few taps, a code will be generated that allows them to activate a pump and start fuelling. Payment is then automatically charged to the method on file, with Fuel Rewards savings applied.
The service is already being piloted, with a nationwide rollout planned for the next few months.
