Here is an article on one of the stations. The other was built after this article, and has a similar name (Sun Gas).

I'm having the same issue. I posted about it in the iOS feedback thread.

This doesn't seem to be happening, at least not around here.
Just because Waze updates once a day doesn't mean "3rd party" does.

Pretty sure I posted $3.89 at a station after a big jump, and saw it showing $3.69 by "3rd party" in the client later when I passed it again (still $3.89).
Possibly Waze's daily update of outdated 3rd party pricing is overwriting yours? Maybe Waze can modify the way they import the data and compare last update times?

How do you remove on fuel type and add another fuel type

So I could update just today the diesel price and keep older prices from other gas types.

I agree.

Too often I see reports which only include the Regular price, or only the Regular and Diesel prices, because almost all stations in the area show only these on their signs. When someone updates only the Regular and Diesel prices, the Plus and Premium prices are overwritten, even if they haven't changed more than a couple cents in a week.

This wouldn't have been such a problem five years ago, when plus was universally 10¢ more and premium 20¢ more than regular, but times have changed. Some stations add about 15¢ for plus and 30¢ more for premium, but some set the prices seriously high, with plus some 50¢ higher than regular and premium some 70¢ higher. Having even week-old prices would allow those who require premium gas to determine which stations gouge and which don't.

Did Waze not show you that it was 52 days old when you did the gas search?

Haha! I suppose it was in a big long list of localization words to translate and someone saw "total" and thought "Oh, the word for that is Totaal, naturally"!

Where can I ask for E85 flex fuel to be added for France ? We have about 300 gas station providing it but no way with waze to find them and/or update prices for this gas type. Most of all, on some station that offer it, people are replacing price of LGP with E85 so it's a bit disturbing

Ok, just got it. There's only 4 gas type possible in waze. That's quite a sad news to see limitations like this.

I dont have gas stations in our province or even in neighbouring states, but really? what does it matter? Gasbuddy dominates this and will always.

I say let's focus on other areas to add new and improve existing features to the app like the ability to manually add incidents on the map without first coming across the incident, like Beat the Traffic does.
