Could we add a new category for Premium Diesel? I know its limited to only Canadians, but it will help those who gas up at Shell.

Priemium Diesel, Ultra 94. We could have a box for 5, 6 or 7 grades of fuel. That may get a little crazy. I try to put a comment in the comment box to let people know what is there, but I suspect many don't look there.

Don, it would be nicer if the grades at each station was a configurable variable defined under "Edit Station Info." Usually 87 octane is the "regular/unleaded" but sometimes 85 octane is also offered. More variance is found in premium, whether its 91, 92, or 93 octane.

I don't miss the lack of E85 prices, but making the fields variable per station would make provisions for E85.

Would also delete fuels/grades which are not available at a station such as diesel and sometimes the mid-grade.

There is a problem with forthcoming E15. Perhaps the grades for gasoline should be En-x and E85, where "x" is the octane rating and "n" is the "up to" percentage of ethanol? E10-87 is the most common regular.

Premium diesel (or high cetane diesel) isn't necessarily limited to Canada. The cetane number could vary more so between whatever is considered regular and premium diesel in areas throughout Canada as compared to the US, but premium diesels are not just found in Canada.

If Shell is a supplier of a high cetane diesel fuel, then a search for Shell under the diesel fuel type should find you specifically what you're looking for.

We are considering adding other fuel types to the website and apps, however, currently only display the three main grades of gasoline, and diesel. We are hoping to improve upon this as time goes on though.
