Chevrolet and Shell are teaming up to offer drivers the opportunity to use GM's recent Marketplace feature to pay for gas — and earn savings through Shell's Fuel Rewards program — all without leaving the car.
This new feature sounds like it should add a lot of convenience for drivers, especially those that are loyal to a particular brand of gas station. However, unless you live in New Jersey, you probably still have to get out of your car and pump the gas yourself. That just delays the inevitable exposure to whatever inclement weather might exist outside of your Chevrolet-manufactured cocoon.
Marketplace is available on certain model-year 2017 and newer Chevrolet models. The partnership with Shell existed already, and it allows drivers to locate nearby Shell stations, look up station amenities and sign up for the rewards program. The expansion to in-car payment is currently being piloted in select markets with a nationwide rollout planned "throughout the coming months."
