Ford Gets Rid of Gas Station Cooties with In-Vehicle Pump Payments

Ford has buddied with the ExxonMobil Speedpass+ app to make paying for gas as easy as using the in-vehicle touch screen or voice commands to authorize payment. 

This means drivers can pay for gas without having to punch grimy buttons, fumble through wallets and purses, or swipe credit cards in the freezing cold.

The partnership also enables drivers to use the app to search for and find approximately 9,400 Exxon and Mobil gas stations.

Using GPS, the vehicle recognizes it is at a participating Exxon or Mobil station, making it easy for the driver to enter the pump number and automatically pay for gas.

To pay for fuel using voice commands:

1 Say, “Pay for fuel” or “Express pay”

2 Indicate which pump number to authorize by saying the number; for instance, “1” or “Pump 1”

3 Confirm fuel authorization and begin fueling

Drivers also can use the app to search for and navigate to approximately 9,400 Exxon and Mobil stations. Using the Ford SYNC 3 touch screen, the car automatically shows a list of nearby stations, along with directions, when a customer’s fuel gauge drops below a specified fuel level.

SYNC AppLink provides drivers with the ability to control compatible smartphone apps using their voice or the in-vehicle touch screen.

A Speedpass key tag is a free “touchless” payment device that links to your existing credit or debit card, so you can pay quickly at the pump or in the store at participating Exxon- and Mobil-branded service stations nationwide and then be on your way.

• Save time at the pump or in the store
• Pay with confidence knowing your account information is secure
• Link it to your Plenti card to earn Plenti points
• Use Plenti points for savings at the pump—just wave the Speedpass key tag

Link your Speedpass to your ExxonMobil Smart Card, ExxonMobil Business or Fleet cards, MasterCard, Visa, American Express or Discover as well as MasterCard, Visa or Discover debit cards. You can change cards whenever you want or link different cards to different devices.
