Shell tests automated pumps

Published on .

Shell Oil Products Co., Houston, will test in Sacramento the Smart Pump, an automated robotics system that pumps gasoline without drivers getting out of their cars. Shell also plans to start testing another program, dubbed Easy Pay, in two undisclosed markets this summer. Easy Pay lets a customer use a key chain device with a computer chip to identify the credit card number, activate the gas pump and record the purchase.
