A petrol price virgin! :mrgreen:

Can you share more info on the location and the device you've used, as well as if there was a price before? Also what format was the old price in?

Newbie to the forums here, but the way I have been updating the petrol stations with the 6 digit numbers is to have all prices pre typed out in a notepad on my phone and then copy and paste the price in from the notepad and that inputs all 6 digits.
I logged a ticket with waze a few months ago at this stage but i haven't heard back from them since. It looks like they are slowly converting them back to the 4 digit version now. Although there is one near me in that wont accept any format other than a 2 digit format with a decimal in the middle :roll:

Welcome to the forums!

The correct price format for Ireland is in cents so xxx.x (or for example 144.9). You can probably tell by the symbol which is not €, but "c".

There have been a couple of long periods where the feature somehow got broken and the price format among other elements did not work properly.

We're hopefully coming out of the woods after some development progress in the last 2 weeks, so stay tuned.

We didn't help ourselves that much (although it wasn't clear that it would cause a problem at the time) when we asked Waze HQ to change the price format from €X.XX (euro amount with two digits for cents) to YYY.Yc (cent amount with one digit for decimal fraction for cents).

It was probably my fault when we first got fuel prices enabled by asking for €X.XX instead of YYY.Yc, but, well, we know better now :)

Just about half an hour ago I tried 4 gas stations that were giving me the uh-oh until yesterday, and they all accepted the xxx.x price! Shall I jump from excitement?

Is it working OK for you guys?

Not really :( - although I only tried two petrol stations today:

The first was showing no prices and "N/A" for each fuel type. I got the "uh oh!" error when I tried to update the prices, even when I tried the copy-and-paste six digits trick.

The second had last been updated 20 days ago and was showing €X.X (1.4 and 1.5, I think) prices. I also got the "uh oh!" message when I tried to update, but it did accept 1.4 and 1.5 as new prices. Hmmm...

I encountered one station today with a funny "1.5" price. What I did:
1. Mark fuel as unavailable, submit
2. Mark fuel as available, enter price, submit

Seemed to work fine (Circle K Cork Airport).
