BP Amoco is expected to announce an agreement with Tokheim to turn its gasoline pumps into Internet-connected kiosks that would provide weather forecasts, traffic updates, and advertising, according to reports.

Tokheim manufactures and services electronic and mechanical petrol pumps.

The new pumps would include Internet browsers and Microsoft's Windows CE operating system, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing Gray Taylor, Tokheim's director of strategic programs.

Revenue the pumps generate from advertising is secondary to cost savings for BP in managing its equipment, as the pumps could, for example, email corporate headquarters when they need servicing, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The giant European oil company said last Tuesday that profit rose 19 percent in the second quarter after oil prices surged and cost cuts from the $62 billion purchase of Amoco began to materialize.
