Sketch, what you're suggesting is not how u have understood how we are doing gas stations at all. In most cases the brand and name match. Maybe we missed this in the guidance thread?

* If converting to title case, do we want to do anything to track it was imported?

1. Yes, that is my understanding and what I've written in the guidelines post.
2. I don't know. But does it, in the end, matter? Just like ROTW, eventually, all gas station landmarks imported or added manually, will be available in the app for updating pricing.

Many non-brand chains like Fred Meyer, Kroger, Costco, etc., likely get their fuels from multiple refineries and brands, and even the same station will get different brand fuels at different times. I think it'd be best if these are just listed as unbranded.

Is anyone noticing that the ALL CAPS (added) stations do not have City/State info? I've found two, but unsure if this is to be expected.

This and similar questions, such as what I posted in the other thread, are what we need to provide guidance to editors on.

I'll keep my comments in this thread now, for easier reference.

This should be moved to the US forum.
