I need to add a gas station but the system will not let me. It is Como Oil in Vero Beach, FL at 1731 Commerce Ave. It is a gas station that provides non-ethanol fuel. Thanks!

My apologies for digging up a semi-old topic here,

The station noted in this topic @ 5262 S Dale Mabry was a station listed as being Closed - Temporarily. The brand name and station status has been changed.

The OP station suggestion of 1731 Commerce Ave was added by a user in the area about a week after the topic was started.

Retired-Coastie, station suggestions are verified on the admin side, when time allows. If the provided information is sketchy (ex. someone places the location of a station in the middle of a baseball diamond) than that suggestion is not used.

If you're using the website with over 10,000+ points , feel free to visit the MMaster Station List and use the provided tools to edit/add a new station listing.

-Don

Retired-Coastie - Why don't you add it to the MSL yourself? Click on Gas Prices, then click on Master Station List.

You can't add any stations from any of the apps.

I have been an on and off Gas Buddy member and user. There is a new station in South Tampa that I would like to list and can not figure out how.

It is Petra, 5262 S Dale Mabry, Tampa. They sell regular and Ethanol Free only.

Help Please

Maybe waffling at length without a clear position isn’t the answer?

I'm not hammering you Gas Buddy. Just pointing out a fact.

Well, I get criticized when i respond to a member and I suggest posting gas prices are an important and desireable contribution (as participation shouldn't have anything to do with comments or questions) and criticized for (instead) acknowledging or recognizing a member who has limited participation is looking for help.

Hard to win around here with this rough an audience.

"He's a relatively new member who's interested in adding a gas station to the list so that he can help others, presumably by posting gas prices."

He's been a member who has only amassed 3 points/day in almost 2 years. Hardly new but I would bet at best a casual app only poster.

Can we get back on track and see if rawrxrobert's question has been answered to his satisfaction?

He's a relatively new member who's interested in adding a gas station to the list so that he can help others, presumably by posting gas prices. The peripheral discussion about wikis, blogs, lists, etc., aren't adding to the original post.

I agree 100% with TxJeans last post. CampKohler's wiki is totally unendorsed by TPTB at Gas Buddy.com

I haven't looked at CK's wiki, so I'm not privy to the screen shot that he means to inform rawrxrobert with, but it has seemed to me all along that his intention is to gather the redundant suggestions and ensuing debate from these forum topics in an effort to create some form of single database.

I would agree that whether CK's data is of any use to anyone or not is irrelevant to this and most other discussions where it often becomes a tangential source of ridicule. Moreover, CK is apparently paying more attention to what is said here than is anyone at GB. Inasmuch as there is little or no other regard for the advice or opinions of members, it seems inappropriate and somewhat ironic to deride CK's manner of documenting our otherwise meaningless views and suggestions.

Finally, the answer to rawrxrobert's question is found in the FAQ that uninformed members still have a hard time finding regardless of all that has been said repeatedly here in the forums. If people still can't find this information, there certainly must be a flaw in the delivery system.

My point is we have had some newbies come here and think that CK wiki is something official and with suggestions that adding it to his "wiki" has great significance that the PTB at Gasbuddy endorse and use it.

I will gladly shut up if the PTB at Gasbuddy indicate that they find this list useful and use it to get programming ideas. Otherwise, it should have a disclaimer on each post that it is CK's private list that HE alone determines what goes on the list regardless of support or lack of support from membership.

Who cares whether it's endorsed or not? The referenced page is just an annotated screen shot of the MSL page. And, as CampKohler said, its purpose is to inform the OP (who can't access the corresponding GasBuddy page!) what information is useful to collect before arranging for the station to be added to the MSL. If you have a disagreement with the information, then let us know what it is. If not, then, how about if we just accept the information, and leave personal feelings out of it.

PS: I just checked -- there is an MSL entry for it; but on 2013-06-18 it was marked as "Delete - Other", by CaptGeo3. Perhaps that user could shed some light on the reason for the deletion.

As TxJeans posted, you should post this in your local forum. And if you took advantage of all the points offered, you would have exceeded 10,000 and would have been able to add this station to the MSL yourself.

You can refer to CampKohler's wiki all you want but that wiki is not endorsed by Gas Buddy and anything found in it is CampKohler's interpretation of how things should be done which in some cases is not correct.

Please note that CK's wiki is his own wiki where he has taken screen shots from this site. It is not an official GasBuddy.com form.

It may be helpful to refer to this blank form to gather the necessary data to pass on to a senior member.

rawrxrobert, since you might not want to wait for 8 years, you could post this in the local forum for that site. Maybe one of the seniors there can update the MSL and can thank you for all your assistance in helping out...

When you earn 10K points, you will be able to add the station. At the rate you are going, I guess you will be able to add it in another 8 years.
