I am very new to GasBuddy, so I may be missing this.

I pass one particular station every day and so want to report the pricing, but could never find the station on the add gas prices section. Now I have just got enough point to finally see the master station list and finally found the station I have been looking for. However I cannot add this to my own favourites from the master list- am I missing something?

I want to add the pricing, but when trying cannot find the station as no one else is reporting the pricing so it doesn't show up.

Very confused, so if anyone can offer an answer I would appreciate it.

I tried using Safari and it does not work with Safari.

Also, there seems to be 2 users having a war over this station, switching its location between Corbyville and Blessington. This could cause some issues with your FSL entry.

Sheesh. Asking around for an existing Safari user is a perfectly reasonable request, scoutmaster.

I can't install Safari (or anything else) on the PC I am using today.

Why don't you confirm it, CampKohler?

Can anyone else confirm this problem with Safari? If there is a problem with that function with that browser, it should be addressed.

Thank you Scapheap, that worked. Was using Safari, but switched to Firefox and was able to add station. Many thanks.

Did you try a different browser? A window should pop up asking you which FSL you want to add it to. I wonder if you have some browser setting that is preventing you from seeing that. That station works for me.

I go to the MSL and search for the area and get a list of stations. In this case 4.

http://www.ontariogasprices.com/StationMasterList_nv.aspx?SIndex=0&SText=&CIndex=101&CText=&STIndex=44&MIndex=0&MText=&PIndex=&Street=&state=ON

The one I want is Global Blessington Store which is showing, but nothing happens when I click on Add to my Favorites. I have tried with some other stations and cannot add them either. It lets me edit and view on map, but not add to favorites.

Any help appreciated, thanks.

Why hasn't this been added to your wiki CK?

I'm assuming the OP is referring to the full website not the smartphone app since they mention accessing the MSL.

The OP might be drilling down in the MSL to the details of a single station first, then looking for the button to add it to the FSL from there, instead of from the MSL list of stations that are returned when searching in the MSL.

Also while it's true that a station with expired prices won't show up in an area search, the station should be available on the Report Gas Prices page (if it exists in the MSL) but I've had an occassional problem finding stations on the Report Prices page because they were not in the city I thought they were but in an adjacent geographical area.

Ooops! That link should be: about which the fur flies here.

Can you give us the exact keystrokes you are using? (Due to the fact that GB site pages are not numbered or consistently named, it is sometimes difficult to determine exactly what a member is talking about exactly and we need to be exact to help you).

If I go to the MSL (somegasprices.com/StationMasterList_nv.aspx) and select a metro-area and city (also known on other site pages as area), I get a list of all the stations in that city. Any station which is currently in one of my FSL's shows a link "Favorite Station" accompanied by a yellow star, whereas any station that is not in any of my FSL's shows a link "Add To My Favorites." Clicking either link will produce a dialog box to allow selecting an FSL and entering any desired comment. Clicking "Add to Favorites List" should produce a "Successfully added station to your favorite stations list" message, to which you must click "OK" to continue. (Note that a recent change nullifies an apparently successful addition of a station that is already in that list, i.e. you can't add the same station twice to the same FSL, L=Forum_MSG.aspx?master=1&category=1055&topic=531230](about which the fur flies here[/L].)

Please try the above steps and see if you can make it work. If not, please return with the exact step where it fails and we'll investigate.

If you can perform an area search and a list of stations appear along the left hand side of the screen, simply click on the Add To My Favorites link next to the particular station you want to add.
