BP's latest innovation has been announced -- a smartphone payment technology which lets you buy fuel from your car.

The free BPMe app is the first of its kind in Australia and also allows you to track your odometer, store electronic fuel receipts and locate your closest BP service station.

"Smartphone penetration rates in Australia are some of the highest in the world and mobile payment solutions are what our customers have been demanding," said VP Sales and Marketing, Brooke Miller.

"We recognise the importance of mobile and card-less payments to this customer base and we understand the need for faster transaction times and easier payment processes."

Developed by New Zealand company, PaperKite, for iOS and Android, BPMe will be piloted to "a select group of highly valued BP Plus card customers" in August -- with full availability from September.
