Z Energy is trialling a novel new way for customers to purchase petrol, without stepping out of their cars.

CCTV cameras, combined with payment technology, will allow customers at the trial stations to simply arrive, fill up and leave.

For those who don't want to leave of the car, attendants will be ready to help in some stations, meaning customers can stay strapped in.

CEO Mike Bennetts told RadioLIVE the change would allow customers to get in and out of the station as quickly as possible.

"It's responding to what our customers are telling us, which is 'hey, we've got busy days, you're an interruption to our busy day, how can you make it faster and easier for us'," he said.

"So what we've done now is people can download our Z app, register their details, they can now drive in to one of these trial sites with a fast lane and the whole transaction is seamless."

The CCTV cameras record the number plate of the car and drivers are later billed for the transaction.

Ten stations around New Zealand will take part in the trial, including three on Auckland's North Shore, three on the city side of the bridge and three in Christchurch.
