I agree, Tony. I've already asked them to switch the feature on in the UK! :)

As I have for Toll Roads too

We already have Esso, BP and Waitrose in WME.*
Shell, Tesco, Morrisons should be imported soon
Asda & Sainsbury's are playing hardball. They want to help but claim they don't have lists of their stations. Asda are trying one final source.

All other smaller chains and independents will need to be added manually.

*Note, even imported stations will need their landmark stretched over the full forecourt (or site) and details like address, phone etc added - some of the imports were sparse to say the least!

It /should/ augment but not overwrite existing details. But personally I'm just waiting anyway.

Both just kept pointing me to their website. Frustrating! The others just gave me the necessary info, Tesco actually phoned me to make sure they got it right.

Sainsburys have 267 fuel stations, according to WhatGas.

So we could realistically get them ourselves then. I'll obviously cover Scotland's unless Kieran or Daz want to join in?

Yep, got them. Missed them from the "should be imported soon" line!

Yeah got them. Not 100% sure we're allowed to use them though so been sourcing data straight from the retailers themselves!
