This is essentially a duplicate of the topic at
Moderator's response regarding kerosene in previous topic
in which the moderators wrote: "We are considering adding other fuel types to the website and apps, however, currently only display the three main grades of gasoline, and diesel."

This topic should be closed as duplicating a recent topic that has already been ansered (and closed) by the moderators.

Regarding CampKohler's comments, "Why should this topic be locked? Suppose someone has something to say about the subject? Are they to be refused because someone doesn't like it? Whose tastes should decide whether or not something should be discussed? And in my opinion that goes for moderators, too, because when they invite the public in, they invite their culture as well.
"Either you believe in freedom or you don't. Part of the cost of freedom is allowing everyone to go on and on about something you are sick and tired of hearing about or disagree with, even if the chances of them changing anyone's thinking approaches zero...
"Locks are for those who fear others gaining entry. What are we afraid of? Kerosine zombies stumbling down our streets looking to enslave our teenagers in minimum wage jobs at fast food joints? (Oh, wait, that happens anyway.)"

Suggesting a topic be locked because the operators have already made their decisions on what prices/types of fuel will or will not be posted, and because the moderators have already made their position known, and (further) because this is simply another topic on an issue that has been started a number of times, isn't an issue of freedom; it isn't an issue of human rights, and it most definitely is not an issue regarding "the cost of freedom".

And I'm not sure what "Locks are for those who fear others gaining entry" means.

Just because this website allows discussion of various issues doesn't mean that every issue should be allowed to be discussed, nor does it mean that every topic created should be allowed to replicated or duplicated repeatedly simply because a member wants to start it (regardless of whether that member did or did not bother to see if there was already a topic on the issue. I guess, perhaps, that if the member starting this topic had reviewed a member started "Suggested Topic List" and saw there already was a topic on this issue, "the member wouldn't have started this topic. But as newer members (for the most part) haven't been referencing the Suggested Topic List and starting a topic similar or identical to one already started, it seems prudent for other members to reference previously started topics and request the duplicate be discontinued and reduce what amounts to (in my opinion) unnecessary fluff.

But that's just my opinion, along with agreeing that this topic should be closed as suggested by maxstar.

CK, the OP's issue was addressed by the moderator in the link I provided. No longer a reason to leave it open.

Then start you own site!

Why CK???? Because this had been brought up numerous times by numerous people in numerous topics! Freedom has nothing to do with it! Go back to your maps!

Moderators,
What maxstar said!

This suggestion has been added to the Suggestion Tracking List as a new topic on an existing subject.

Why should this topic be locked? Suppose someone has something to say about the subject? Are they to be refused because someone doesn't like it? Whose tastes should decide whether or not something should be discussed? And in my opinion that goes for moderators, too, because when they invite the public in, they invite their culture as well.

Either you believe in freedom or you don't. Part of the cost of freedom is allowing everyone to go on and on about something you are sick and tired of hearing about or disagree with, even if the chances of them changing anyone's thinking approaches zero. It is absolutely necessary.

Locks are for those who fear others gaining entry. What are we afraid of? Kerosine zombies stumbling down our streets looking to enslave our teenagers in minimum wage jobs at fast food joints? (Oh, wait, that happens anyway.)
