Wow, I love how this thread took off :-D

I noticed at the Petro-Canada near my house that they had gas prices at 134.4 , not.9. Waze currently assumes that it always ends in .9, but when you take a quick look at http://www.montrealgasprices.com/, you'll notice gas stations now have prices ending in .3, .4 and .7 as well. Can we add that option in waze?

Ok so we still are unable to enter gas prices in Canada. We always get an "invalid price" error message because (I'm guessing) the price is too low due to being by the liter instead of by the (US) gallon.

When is this being fixed?

Could someone show an evidence of gas station in Canada accepting prices in the $1.20-$1.40 range per litter?

Cheers,
Hagay.


I too am getting this same error when trying to enter gas prices locally. Hopefully this can be resolved soon.

See above.

This is a known issue -- Canada has been rolled in with the US's price limits ($2.00-$5.00?) so any attempt to report a price outside that range fails.

I've requested that the lower limit be reduced to $0.50 until they sort Canada out of the US, but apparently that hasn't been done.

They should add a price per liter in the App menu, to cover world wide.
Some other countries also using liters, not gallons.
It might just be the case for Canada, because we are on the NA server and always been the black swan.

Hagay.

Indeed. As gas prices go online in other countries, they're assigning price range limits on a country-by-country basis.

I suspect that the issue is they applied the US ones to the entire server, rather than doing it the same way they have on ROW.

Cheers! Sorry I missed that reading through the thread.

I second this. I saw $2.75 per litre in Norman Wells last winter. I know it's an extreme situation, but we may as well be prepared.

Is it possible to get the fuel types in octane rating?

How should we deal with stations that offer different grades? Most Chevron and some Petro-Canada stations over 94 in addition to the more common 87, 89, and 91. It would be nice to make it easy for users who need to go out of their way to find 94.

Unfortunately, the Waze app only supports four grades. I did try to get "Super-Premium (94)" included, but no dice.

The most common are: 87, 89, 91 & diesel. I don't know of anyone who *needs* 94 -- though I know of some who *prefer* it. :)

At this point, I just want the thing turned on properly -- if gas starts approaching $2 per litre in a populated area, I'll push hard to have the limit changed quickly. Somehow I think that for now, a $0.75 to $2.00 limit should more than cover our prices.
