I've noticed that the Favorites display lists, of course, the prices from low to high. This is great but it should also do a sub-sort on the distance from the user. I don't know why, but I continually get the farthest station listed first even though the nearest station has the same price. Maybe this could be added to the next GasBuddy update.

For the full-site FSL, the default sort should not be by price. Even though you said, "No" that you weren't using the app, I have to ask you to verify this again. Are you sure you are using the full site? And if not an app, how would a PC tell the system where the user is in order to do a "do a sub-sort on the distance from the user?"

However, let's assume you are indeed using the full-site FSL. All station's Sort Order fields are set to 1 by default when first added to the list. Within the same S.O., the stations are in ascending alphabetical order by Station Name. It is up to you to assign the S.O. numbers to arrange the stations in any desired order, say, along a route. Please read this topic.

RorR: FYI, there's no FSL on the iPhone yet.

You using the app?
ios or android?

If using latest android version, you can change the sort by 3 options
1 distance
2 price
3 default
tap the bottom middle where it says by price and you will see the change of sort.
