Alternative Fueling Station Locator
By National Renewable Energy Laboratory
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
The Alternative Fueling Station Locator app helps you find fueling stations that offer electricity, natural gas, biodiesel, E85, propane, or hydrogen.
Use your current location or enter a custom location to find the 20 closest stations within a 30-mile radius. View the stations on a map or see a list of stations ordered by distance from your location. Select your alternative fuel of choice and adjust the custom filters to fit your needs.
Select a station from the map or list to view contact info and other details:
- address, phone number, and hours of operation
- payment types accepted
- public or private access
- special services
- compression (natural gas)
- vehicle size access (natural gas)
- number and types of chargers (electric)
- blends available (biodiesel)
- blender pumps (ethanol)
The app draws information from the U.S. Department of Energy's Alternative Fuels Data Center, which houses the most comprehensive, up-to-date database of alternative fueling stations in the United States. The database contains location information for more than 15,000 alternative fueling stations throughout the country.

- Fix iOS 10 compatibility.
- Update layout to support larger iPhone screen sizes.
- Limit GPS access to only when app is open.
- Bug fixes.
Updated to IOS-10!
Update... I don't like that the program defaults to Apple maps - and in a Metropolis, where there are Transits... there's no option or any way to open the destination / route in Google maps. There's also no way to copy the address to paste it into Google. I hate Apple maps.
Must have app for Alt Fuel Vehicle owners
Surprisingly there are very few apps like this that highlight a pretty solid lineup of different Alternative Fuel Stations available.. I just bought a used Honda Civic GX (The CNG/ Compressed Natural Gas Powered Civic) so hopefully this app will be used by many and continue to grow in popularity.
Great. 5Star. Lacks redo search in area
I have a CNG car in Cali. This app is the best on the App Store. Only feature it lacks is the ability to redo a search in that area (like yelp or google maps has).
Great app. Use it often.
