Ok, now that we can fix gas stations on the US server, I have a question: when adding gas stations, why is it that the address field is not filled out on the new station in the phone client? I added a few missing stations in Hawaii and it just shows the brand of gas and phone number I provided.

Should I add entry and exit points to the gas station from the main road(s)? If so, is it private road or parking lot road? Thanks! :)

A parking lot road is the best.

If it's far away from the nearest road, and navigating in or out might be confusing, then yes, with some parking lot roads. Otherwise, why?

Doesn't having parking lot roads help prevent the data from cars stopped at the station from polluting the main road data?

Reason why I do it, people find entry points, and some station exits don't allow certain turns, so it's helpful to users. If it's in a rural area, I don't bother though for obvious reasons.

Do they work? My expectation is that Waze would direct the driver to the closest stub regardless of the direction he's headed. Assuming the stubs are functional--you added terminal junctions, right?

Hi all,

Is there any activity to include CNG and LPG as gas types for gas stations?
Espacially demanded in Germany, France for LPG from my experience and Iran, Pakistan, Argentina, Brazil and India for CNG from wikipedia
Thanks for all the fish ;-)
