I noticed that you list all the grades of gas, diesel and propane in the features drop down but you don't have kerosene listed.
Stopped at a Speedway and they had seperate pump for it off to the side
That would good to add for people looking to fill up there heaters and such

scoutmaster I have seen it requested both ways, although adding it to the station features would make the most sense.

CC,

We are not talking about adding kerosene as another fuel type. We are talking about having it as a check box under station features.

CNG may be something to add as larger trucks are being offered by KW, Peaterbuilt, Mac and Volvo. GM and Ford offer it on there pickups also.
DEF fluid although not a fuel, it is sold right next to diesel pumps at larger stations could be considered.

We are considering adding other fuel types to the website and apps, however, currently only display the three main grades of gasoline, and diesel.

We have been looking at developing this feature for the past little while. We will consider making it more of a priority.

Good luck in the search for low-priced fuel.

Adding kerosene as a check box to the station features is all that is needed.

well I finley found some stations in my area with kerosene pumps and will post them on comments for those stations. A Google search for them really sucked! They have no clue ,what a joke! The great search engine, NOT.
Speedway and some marathon stations seemed to have it after I had to call them in person. Good luck in your areas.

And thanks Scrapheap for trying to explain to the people who don't get a simple thing like, just add it to the list of station features
Although a phone # for the gas stations would be nice to add too.

Very true. Thanks for suggesting that they should be.

Since it is still not obvious to some people, the OP is not suggesting that Kerosene prices be posted. He is simply asking for a check box that says the kerosene is available at a given station. This then would be brought up as a station feature on the app or when bringing up a particular station on the main site. These exist for E85, Propane, Payphone, ATMs, Pay at Pump, Air hoses and other features. I see no reason why this can not be extended to CNG, ethanol-free gas or kerosene.

I know that some of you have a reflexive reaction to oppose any suggestion but perhaps you could take just one moment to understand what is being suggested and if it is an improvement to some, even though you may not use it, you would not oppose it and would actually support it.

Don't care about prices at this point . Would be nice to see them listed as just a feature like propane no price for that too
Guide me to those answers MAXSTAR

E85 and E15 are vehicle fuels and I would fully support adding those.

In my opinion, the appropriate place to log the price of any fuel other than the four that are currently supported would be in your local forum. This is what we used to do for diesel, before it was supported by the site.

Kerosene is not a vehicle fuel. The purpose of this site is to post vehicle fuel prices.

As a member for 9 years it should have been fixed a long time ago as it is a price pump at some stations

Good point, Gas Buddy, plus kerosene is not a vehicle fuel.

CNG is not listed, nor is ethanal-free gas.
As scoutmaster suggested, simply add it to the comments. I, for one, doubt that any "feature drop down" would (or should) be all-inclusive to meet the needs of every member. Especially, in this case, we're talking "heaters", and not vehicles.

My opinion.
