Ok, just got it. There's only 4 gas type possible in waze. That's quite a sad news to see limitations like this.

Where can I ask for E85 flex fuel to be added for France ? We have about 300 gas station providing it but no way with waze to find them and/or update prices for this gas type. Most of all, on some station that offer it, people are replacing price of LGP with E85 so it's a bit disturbing

Still, it does at least allow you to enter separate cash/credit pricing, whether E85 is available, etc...

I think this would happen after E85 become widely spread in GS offerings.

E85 is very far from popular enough in the States to justify replacing any of the other four grades. "Regular" (87*), "Plus" (89), and "Premium" (91 or 93) are ubiquitous throughout the country, as is diesel. E85 is available at many stations in the Midwest (i.e., corn country), but hard or impossible to find everywhere else.


*(Before those outside of the US, Canada, and Brazil think our octane levels are so low, the difference is actually because our octane numbers are calculated differently. Most of the world, including Europe and Australia, uses the RON ("research octane number"), whereas the US, Canada, and Brazil use the "anti-knock index", which is calculated by the formula AKI = (RON + MON) / 2. You'll often see "R+M/2" on pump stickers for this reason. MON is usually 8 to 12 less than RON.)

So don't use it. Doesn't bother anyone. The feature's already been there for well over a year, so I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish.

I can regularly save 8-10 cents a gallon by driving an extra quarter mile or so – and that's just for 87. For someone who uses premium, prices can vary wildly, as different stations around here use very different markups.

Haha! I suppose it was in a big long list of localization words to translate and someone saw "total" and thought "Oh, the word for that is Totaal, naturally"!

Did Waze not show you that it was 52 days old when you did the gas search?

So I could update just today the diesel price and keep older prices from other gas types.

I agree.

Too often I see reports which only include the Regular price, or only the Regular and Diesel prices, because almost all stations in the area show only these on their signs. When someone updates only the Regular and Diesel prices, the Plus and Premium prices are overwritten, even if they haven't changed more than a couple cents in a week.

This wouldn't have been such a problem five years ago, when plus was universally 10¢ more and premium 20¢ more than regular, but times have changed. Some stations add about 15¢ for plus and 30¢ more for premium, but some set the prices seriously high, with plus some 50¢ higher than regular and premium some 70¢ higher. Having even week-old prices would allow those who require premium gas to determine which stations gouge and which don't.

Hi, I hope this is the right place to ask help for my problem:

I checked my gps and it 's fine.
