There's a gas station that I frequent that recently discarded their mid-grade and premium offerings and only have 87 and Diesel now. I'm unable to reflect this change and get an error that I must be a senior member or some other goofy term. Is this because I do not have 10,000 points and have a car by my name, and haven't contributed for 90days yet?

Hello Steveo763,

"...is this because I do not have 10,000 points and have a car by my name"

Yes, some site features (such as having access to the station database) require members to have a total points balance of 10,000 or higher.

This is set in place for the Master Station List to prevent new members from signing up and abusing that system.

Actually CampKohler what I'm trying to say is your wiki is not endorsed by GasBuddy.com and it is not an official GasBuddy.com wiki.

CK - I don't think he needs a FORM to let someone know what grades they stopped selling.

<<<"that recently discarded their mid-grade and premium offerings and only have 87 and Diesel now.">>>>

And, the MSL isn't tied to the price entry yet...though promised to be in the works.

The form CampKohler referenced is not an official GasBuddy.com form nor is it endorsed by GasBuddy.com.

What is nice to know pilotmass?

Yes, it is because you have to have 10,000 points before you can update the MSL.
If you go to your local forum (or if out of the area, to the local forum for where the station is located) you can post the information and a senior member can update it for you and welcome you to the gasbuddy family.
