  • Chevron Rolls Out Support for Apple Pay at its First Gas Pump


    Chevron, after six months of promising to support Apple Pay touchless payments at gas pumps, has finally rolled out the service at a station across the street from its headquarters in San Ramon, California. The company took to Twitter to announce NFC payment support, including Apple Pay, at dispensers installed at a gas station on San Ramon Valley Blvd., which means that nearby iPhone 6, 6 Plus and Apple Watch owners can pay at the pump having to go for their wallet. More locations are set to be rolled out soon but no timeline has been offered. Chevron did tweet the following “Cupertino coming soon!” likely in reference to Apple’s nearby campus.

    The company originally revealed its plans to incorporate the Apple Pay mobile payment solution at gas pumps back in December. At the time, Chevron said it was working directly with Apple on the project and hoped to bring the first Apple Pay compatible dispensers online in early 2015. The company seems to have slightly missed the mark but better late than never.

    Apple’s list points toward Chevron as the only gas and oil company that has currently pledged to support the mobile payment platform in the US. Chevron ended up being one of the first Apple Pay adopters and rolled out support at point of sale terminals in its convenience stores and Texaco Extra Mile locations when the payments service first launched last October.

    We’ll have to see how well Apple Pay picks up as time goes on.

      I almost exclusively use Chevron for gas... I will be very happy to use my apple watch to pay at the pump in the hopefully not too distant future...

      This is great news. I'll make sure to use it when I'm in San Ramon, CA. About 400 mls from the nearest chevron right by my house.

      Too bad Chevron gas is more expensive than others. It would be nice if Arco/ AM PM jumped on this.

      If you think gas is dear in USA come to England and fill up in a BP garage it'll cost you about $10 a gallon. BP are the dearest here yet people still fill up there. Nuts

      Gas is gas. I buy it when I need it, and if there are 2+ stations on opposing corners, I go with the cheapest. Contrary to popular belief, and that ridiculous marketing campaign from the 90s, Chevron with Techron, doesn't mean anything.

      True that gas is gas and will work from any station, but there are companies like Shell and Chevron/Texaco that put in additives that are designed to clean your engine.

      Gas is gas and it all comes form one of a few refineries, but you're dead wrong on additives. That is where the difference lies.

      Pretty much all gas has additives. They all do the same thing. I exclusively use Mobil cuz the price is low and it doesn't burn up so fast. It lasts the longest, in my experience.

      Huh? Maybe it lasts longer because you squeezed a little more gas into the tank with the savings?
