Hi OzBargain Community,
I have made a new app to help people find the best fuel price in their area, anytime! The app is called FuelRadar and is now available on the App Store and Google Play. The Fuel Radar website provides more information about our app.
You might have heard of other apps like MotorMouth and Petrol Spy. I went on the mission of creating a new app, which offers new features with a better user interface and doesn't rely on crowdsourced data to display fuel prices. I wanted to make something better than what's already out there.
Other apps make it hard to truly find the best fuel price and they don't support every fuel type. These apps can also be biased in the way fuel data is displayed, by promoting stations, creating an unfair fuel price and misleading users.
FuelRadar on the other hand, supports all stations which are currently supported by Government sources, updates fuel data every 15 minutes, is not biased when presenting fuel data, allows for users to add their fuel cards and apply per-litre discounts from stations they are a member of, see average fuel prices for nearby areas, favourite fuel stations, view a detailed summary of a station and colour-coded guides make it easy to quickly know which stations offer the best fuel prices. Users also have the flexibility to choose the range of fuel data from 1km to 40km, change the fuel type, fuel brands displayed and sort the order of stations on their preference.
Platforms FuelRadar is available on:
* Google Play Store
* App Store
* Web App
FuelRadar now supports the following states/territories:
* Western Australia
* Northern Territory
* New South Wales
What about the following states/territories?
We have now introduced support for Tasmania. We will soon be supporting South Australia, as they will be introducing Government sourced fuel data. However, Victoria & ACT do not currently provide up-to-date fuel prices from Government fuel data. This is where crowd-sourced data is needed.
However, we don't want to introduce crowd-sourced fuel data, as we have found other apps, which utilse this feature, can become targets of users submitting false fuel information, causing annoyance and havoc for other road users of the app. This is why FuelRadar will only utilse official Government fuel data, where the data can be reliant based on the data submitted from fuel station operators.
We hope you enjoy the app and let us know if you encounter any problems. The FuelRadar team will act promptly with new updates and more features are planned on our roadmap soon.
