Would like to be able to select certain stations for the fill-ups. May not necessarly be the cheapest, but would like to know where a favorite station is long the way.

It would be cool to see them do what I seen some other apps do with add-ons..

The basic app stays the same but a quick and easy search at the app stores would allow you to get more things from the website on your phone. that way people wanting the trip cost calculator could get it or the gas price heat map on there phone could get that add-on or on and on with really ANY features on the website then available on the app

BUT being there own add-ons allows you to pick and choose whats on your phone while still leaving the origonal purpose and goal of the app (of finding cheep gas thing) easy to do

I agree with maddog57. IESRT8's suggestion would be especially useful for excluding "members only" stations from the planned route of a trip. It would be expecially useful to be able to exclude multiple brands simultaneously.

No not what I said. I still have a distance in mind but do not want to put Flyin j gas in my car just because it is the cheapest.

Is there a problem with the Trip Cost Calculator? I've tried it several times tonight on 2 different laptops and it doesn't seem to be working.

This suggestion has been added to the Suggestion Tracking List as a new subject.

There have been suggestions about allowing the user to choose routes, prices, brands, distances of stations off the route and now specific stations. Somebody should put all these into one grand plan.

In other words, you're asking that Gas Buddy provide a list of the specific stations that you can have, in essence, hold in your hand? Price and/or maximum distance irrelevant? Sort of like a list of tourist sites you want to stop at?
