OK, so the petrol prices are a bit messed up right now: the symbol is now showing as 'c' (good), but the price is formatted as X.X and is still a euro amount, rounded to the nearest ten cent...

Waze HQ is looking at as I write...

This is probably the best place to ask - how do we add a new Petrol station brand?

Topaz rebrands to Circle K.

When we set up the original set of brands we communicated with HQ directly, so that's the place to go. There should be a forum thread here (probably a few years old by now) where we discussed the set of brands to set up - it might be worth reading that to see if we want to adjust the set of brands we have.

I'm glad (in a way) that it's Topaz that's rebranding because for some reason it's all upper case.

Anyway, maybe we should add Circle K as a separate brand to Topaz until the rebranding is complete - I've only seen one Circle K petrol station so far - a lot of the Topaz petrol stations haven't changed their branding yet.

Oh don't get me started on that upper case Topaz :roll:
Circle K's logo is also upper case, but I think we can agree normalising it in WME :lol:

I've created a new thread for reviewing the list - https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=119&t=257397

Some of you may have noticed (as I did last night) that petrol stations where a user has updated the prices recently are now showing the correct price (XXX.X in cent), but petrol stations where a user hasn't updated the prices for a while are still showing it wrongly (X.X in euro).

So update the prices whenever you're in a petrol stations; given time, everything should return to normal and we should have prices showing to the nearest tenth of a cent.

I haven't used this feature much in the past, but since a few days I'm getting this "Uh-oh!" message as soon as I hit Confirm Prices and then it simply exits. Has anyone else experienced this?

Since a few days I'm attempting to update the prices for almost every gas station I drive past. And it's working for many of them. Can't identify a pattern yet though..

Apparently, gas stations that have prices formatted as X.X accept a price update with the same format, but not a price update with the new format!

I typically only update them when I'm stopped at a petrol station, so not all that often.

I stopped at this one yesterday and it had been updated by another user earlier in the day. It was showing prices in the new format and the prices they had entered were correctly-formatted (xxx.x) and were also showing the correct values already, so I confirmed that they were still correct with no error.

Latest update on the fuel price problem: apparently this is caused by a bug in the app. According to HQ, somebody is working it.

Watch this space...
