Petrol/Gas station brands

Postby YanisKyr » Tue May 15, 2018 12:46 pm

Hi guys, with the opportunity of Topaz re-branding to Circle K, let's review the list of Gas station brands.

The list in this old thread doesn't match what's in the editor nowdays https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=119&t=22392 so I have prepared a Google Spreadsheet with the brands currently in WME - feel free to make edits etc. Once we're happy with the list, Waze HQ can publish it live in WME.

I'm in two minds about Topaz and Circle K. Although I haven't seen many petrol stations with Circle K branding yet, I presume all the Topaz stations are going to change eventually, so it would be handy if they could all be changed over in one go by Waze HQ rather than us having to manually change each one.

Maybe we should wait a month or so (or however long it takes for the majority of Topaz stations to change their branding) and then get all Topaz stations changed to Circle K in one go by HQ. Thoughts?

Could be an option, but I've got a feeling it will be slow and dreadful like Esso :D

The first Circle K report I'm bumping on, which surprisingly, is from 17 Apr!

I personally never saw the below - does anyone know if they're still operating?
ENI
Excol
Xpress Stop

ENI is an Italian brand - not sure if they've ever operated here.

Excol still exists as a company (see here) and they're based in Sligo. I don't know whether they still run petrol stations under that brand though.

Xpress Stop rings a bell with me, but maybe they just operate convenience stores in petrol stations, rather than being a petrol brand. It's possible they made it onto the brand list because some independent petrol stations were franchisees of Xpress Stop for the shop in the petrol station, and hence somebody thought that was also the petrol brand.

It *might* be worth getting a list of all petrol stations and assigned brands from Waze HQ - if any of these obscure brands don't exist then we could consider removing these brands.

HQ have that list of all places in the pipeline.

Meanwhile I'm thinking of trying this extension with an area of the whole country.
