In the US:
* Waze has a full set of Gas Stations, and at the moment we're not able to update stations on this list.
* Adding a new landmark of Gas station type will NOT add the station to the list. It will add it to the map, and if you enter a name, you will be able to search and navigate to it - just like any other landmark - but won't be able to update prices.


I see that this is a year old, and I'm hoping it's something that's been fixed by now. Saying that "Waze has a full set of gas stations" naively assumes that new gas stations aren't being built every day, which they are, and that old ones aren't closing down, which they are. My area has a few examples of both.

Is the ability to update the gas stations under development? It would make sense, since just about everything else in Waze is crowdsourced.

In addition, I have found quite a few gas stations in my area that are displaced as much as half a mile from their actual locations. Does moving the gas station landmark result in correct navigation, or is the incorrect position "sticky?"

Waze been horrible since the last update. Gas prices included. I'm in Indianapolis, IN, USA. Was just led to a gas station a few miles away only to realize the price was 52 days old!!!

Hi. Please fix the fuel price updating feature! I have successfully updated one gas station during the last 3 months, the other attempts results in an error message saying "the price does not seem to be correct". This has occurred on several different gas stations, with different brands and locations.

In the last weeks I see the popup asking to update the gas price is missing.
I've just checked the switch and it's on.
Why?

4 types is allready hard to update. A fifth is almost impossible without a stop at each gasstation. So a few fueltypes will be skipped. With the current 4 fueltypes, in the Netherlands 2 are ignored regulaly.

With other words, without an external feed for prices, it will not be very accurate I think.

None of the 10 petrol stations on my way to work worked.
