Fuel Purchases Directly Within Apple CarPlay to Be Available This Fall

Drivers will be able to preauthorize fuel purchases directly within Apple CarPlay starting this fall (via Reuters).

The feature, first mentioned in a developer session at WWDC earlier this month, will allow ‌CarPlay‌ users to use apps to navigate to a pump and preauthorize a fuel purchase. Fuel companies will offer individual apps that users will need to install on their iPhone to be available in Apple ‌CarPlay‌. Entering payment credentials in the ‌iPhone‌ app ahead of time will allow users to activate a pump and quickly purchase fuel directly from the ‌CarPlay‌ UI.

Gasoline firm HF Sinclair told Reuters that it plans to adopt the new ‌CarPlay‌ functionality. "We are excited by the idea that consumers could navigate to a Sinclair station and purchase fuel from their vehicle navigation screen," Jack Barger, the company's senior vice president of marketing said. Likewise, P97 Networks CEO Donald Frieden told Reuters that he has taken calls from oil companies that want to make their apps available in ‌CarPlay‌.

Apple has opened up more app categories for ‌CarPlay‌ over time, such as parking, electric vehicle charging, and food ordering. Driving task apps for logging business trip mileages will also become available alongside fuel apps later this year. Fuel purchase apps will be available in Apple ‌CarPlay‌ when iOS 16 officially launches in the fall.

Now thats cool, but it needs to be super intuitive if anyone is gonna use it...like when you pull into a gas station it automatically pops up on your screen asking what type of fuel you want and all you have to do is get out and put the hose in your car.

To build on top of this idea, it would be great to setup presets so that you can start the fueling process in 1 tap; applying any rewards cards and fuels savings cards and pre-authorizing your credit card.

Not a stretch – already using Esso's app to set a cost-limit and authorise and activate a fuel pump – but makes complete sense to work with CarPlay.

Hopefully some of any cut Apple take on this will be pumped back into pro-environment causes to help mitigate the damage fossil-fuel companies do to our planet.
