It failed for me 99% of them on android
regardless what I tried
resulting in an uninformative "Uh Oh"
surely it cannot be diffucult for the app to access X.XX for diesel , petrol
and the brand doesnt really matter as input.
People/Drivers gravitate towards price ... that for me is the only differentiator..
I'd suggest going to "Report an Issue" in Settings and provide details of what's wrong. If more people report it, there may be a better chance of it getting fixed.
The main issue seems to be that fuel prices in Ireland are supposed to be in the xxx.x format (for cents per litre) but at some stage things got broken and it would only let you enter them in the x.xxx format - and Waze didn't seem to like the significant difference in values (probably to protect from incorrect entries) so was failing to accept new price reports.
Things seem to have been resolved around Cork city, as we can now enter in xxx.x format again and no stations appear to have incorrect format x.xxx values so we're not being blocked from entering prices. Things don't seem so great elsewhere...

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).

More than 82% according to this
Maybe, it's time to activate this feature in Waze which was very useful when I was using it in UK/FR.

Great news! Thanks!
Is the list of brands up to date? I hope it won't take them too long if we need to update it like a adding GO?

As far as I remember, petrol stations will show up with their brand logo in Waze client map, that's probably why we have that list I guess. Waze HQ would probably be happier with a shorter list.
Anyway, I think a limited list with the most popular/cheapest brands would be wise.

Maybe just a few more...
- Corrib Oil
- Discount Fuel Deals
- GO (the cheapest in Dublin/Ireland)
- Stewarts Oil
- Tara Oil
- Xpress Stop
That's what I found in the cheapest Top10 in different counties among the missing ones..

Just to confirm that the list of petrol brands has been updated.
They are in WME since 23/12/15.

For the time being, there's no issue in Ireland as the petrol price feature hasn't been activated yet, so no possibility to enter anything at all!
I hope that Waze will let us enter (once activated) either €n.nnn
(not just €n.nn) or [n]nn.n¢
David, maybe poking Waze about the exact format would avoid the issue that they have in UK (and maybe to have the feature activated a bit sooner...

According to this spreadsheet
, 92.21% on 15/07/16.
We requested Waze HQ to activate Petrol price feature last year
and poked them again yesterday.. They said they are still working on it..
