7 Hidden Features in the GasBuddy App You Need to Know


Save more and spend less with these features you may have missed!

Thanks again for using GasBuddy!

1. FILTER FOR FUEL that you need
Don’t waste gas driving around looking for a specific type of fuel. Diesel? e85? Premium? Filter for what gas you need to customize your results and find it faster.

2. AMENITIES for your convenience
Did you know we track amenities so whether you are looking for a restroom, car wash, propane, ATM (and more), click on what you are looking for to find the closest station that can fulfill your needs? No more roaming and guessing! You can also contribute to our tracking by suggesting a station edit and updating it with an amenity you see at the station.

3. PRICE SPREAD (or is it price spend?)
Are you paying too much? Scroll to the bottom of the home screen to see where you stand. Of the 50 stations that populate after you hit “Find Gas Near Me” this is the high-to-low range.

4. Lightning-fast QUICK REPORTS
No need to go deep into the station detail to report. A quick tap of the price will open the “Report Prices” screen so you can report faster. More reports = more chances to win FREE GAS!

5. Follow the LEADERBOARD
We like to make price reporting fun and you can track how to stack up to the competition month-to-month by checking out the leaderboard. Are you the leading Buddy in your area?

6. Playing FAVORITES
Even those seeking the lowest prices sometimes play favorites. Whether the station has great coffee or is on the way to work, you can select it as a favorite. If you are wondering whether you should fill up before you head out or when you return home.

7. The hidden PULL-DOWN
Get a quick glance at the average and lowest fuel prices in the region when you pull down to refresh the list page. This quick comparison will keep you in the know so you can make a pump-or-pass decision quickly!

My goal is to make the lives of our GasBuddies easier with tips, information and advice related to traveling and saving money. I spend many hours driving around in my Toyota 4Runner with my two young kids and big yellow dog. I write for GasBuddy but I carry these other titles as well: wife, mom, marketing maniac, dog owner, commuter, carpool driver, soccer and basketball coach, family CFO, chef, runner, yogi, skier, lover of books, sports fan, semi-retired golfer, knitting beginner, want-to-be painter and vacation planner. Thanks for letting me help you perfect your pit stop!
