I would like to be able to screen for gas stations that have only 100% Gasoline. I know that ethanol fuels lead to shorter engine life and overall car performance so i don't want to buy the ethanol gas. Please update the software to allow for a 100% gasoline filter.

Thanks! you guys are awesome!!

With current laws in the U.S. regarding ethanol being dependent on location, it is very difficult to have a way to determine ethanol content. Some areas require labeling gasoline with ethanol, some do not. Sometimes the only way of knowing is asking the station owner or the operator, and they may be reluctant to tell you.

We are considering adding other fuel types to the website and apps, however, currently only display the three main grades of gasoline, and diesel. Primarily this is done to keep the price entering process as streamlined as possible.

We are hoping to improve upon this as time goes on though.
