Jaguar cars have added cashless payment for fuel with no need for you to leave your vehicle.
[pocket-lint.com...]

Looks like it's via Android Pay.

I'm sure this will start to appear all over the place, especially on high-end vehicles.

Now, the question is, what will the fuel stations do without you getting out of the vehicle and buying a chocolate bar to subsidise the fuel!

I assume you still need to leave your car to actually put the fuel in.

Or do you have fuel station personnel for that over there?

In California, it's beer & wine at the gas station mini-market. Never could understand the thinking there.

New Jersey is all attendant pumped (no self-pumping).

For opposite reasons, I'm told. New Jersey got fed up with pump-and-dump / fill-and-flee; Oregon decided that pumping gas is one way to deal with unemployment.

If you own a Jaguar, surely you can afford the extra few cents/gallon of a full-service gas station?

So you have attendant pumping and the price per gallon is 2-3x lower.

I was vacationing in Austin, TX, a few weeks ago. Perhaps I should have stayed.

Jag is just another Ford nowadays.

Jaguar hasn't been owned by Ford for several years.

Yes, I just looked it up. Now owned by the Indian company Tata Motors since 2008.

I just remember a GF shopping for a car (10 years ago now) and not going for the Jag because the salesman let it slip it was owned by Ford.

I thought that was Louisiana, where you can ask for a takeaway cup for your leftover wine.

Now owned by the Indian company Tata Motors

The imagination boggles, the mind reels. Tata Motors?
