Hi,
My local Esso Station is not found, and I appear unable to add it.

Details are:
Brand: Esso
Business Name: Lynn Lake S 'n C
Address: 527 Sherritt Ave.
Lynn Lake, MB
R0B 0W0

I wouldn't mind updating the prices as they are pretty extreme:
Reg: $1.50/l
Diesel: $1.55/l

Thanks

That said, the ~3,000 points I have accumulated were largely before the Price Posting bug was fixed and posting prices w/o a station being on the MSL was allowed. Once that was corrected, I've been unable to post local prices. I just stopped showing up for the longest time.

Hate to keep asking, but, if anyone would care to take the time, here is the detailed information that the MSL requires - Much more detailed than my initial post requesting assistance:

(Cross-posted in the Manitoba Forum, which has had no activity other than the guestbook since early July)

Hi,
My local Esso Station is not on the Master List, and I appear unable to add it. If I can't post prices, it'll take me forever to hit 10k so I can add it to the Master List myself. The next nearest stations are 100 and 330kms away, respectively, so I really am unable to report prices other than locally.

If someone who is able could possibly add the station to the master list, it would be much appreciated.
All pertinent information follows.

Details are:

Current Station Status: Active/Open for Business

Station Name: Lynn Lake Esso
Alt Name: Lynn Lake S 'n C

Area: Lynn Lake, MB, Canada

Exact Street Address: 527 Sherritt Ave., Lynn Lake, MB

Cross Street: Nickel St.

Province: MB (Manitoba)

Postal Code: R0B 0W0

Phone Number: (204)356-8692

Latitude: 56.852380

Longitude: -101.045996

Station Features:
- Regular Gas
- Diesel
- Restrooms
- Convenience Store
- Auto Repair Shop (Not same business, located in same building)
- Air hose

I wouldn't mind updating the prices as they are pretty extreme (generally the highest reported in the province):

Reg: $1.50/l
Diesel: $1.55/l

Diesel has been over 1.50/l for the past year.

Thanks

I'm literally located on the Raggedy Edge. The End of the Road. Not quite the middle of nowhere, but you can throw a rock at it from here.

The next nearest fuel from here is a Cardlock 100kms away towards the rest of North America. Then it's another 230kms to the next station after that. I don't have regular access to a whole lot of stations around to report on.

I am slowly building points from posting messages, but really don't want to try and get to 10K by spamming this or any other forum on here.

Local forums are what the members make them. Sometimes it just takes a member to put a little effort to jump start it.

Or you may look for an active member of the site and whiteboard them or buddy them.

And it doesn't take all that many days to earn the 10,000 points needed....less than ten days now for someone just joining...

Manitoba forum has a whole lot of tumbleweeds rolling through it. I'm trying anyway.

Thanks again

Thanks, CampKohler and TxJeans. I'll hit the form link, and scout out the MB forum.

You only need a mere 10,000 points to update the MSL....

But, since you haven't reached that mile marker 1 a year, your best bet is to post in your local Manitoba forum and ask a senior member that is in the area to confirm and post the station to the MSL.
