Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
*** Note: Suburbs that have an apostrophe such as O'Connor are not available because the www.fuelwatch.gov.au has a bug, it is not a bug with Fuel Watcher lite ***
Fuel Watch data is only available in WA, the rest of Australia need to petition their Government to introduce a national Fuel Watch programme.
Want to know where the cheapest petrol is? For every 1 cent difference in price, you'll save 60c (60litre fuel tank) every time you fill your tank. This application will pay for itself straight away.
Fuel Watcher LITE:
This LITE version grabs your location by GPS or you can tell it where to search, and its tells you the 3 fuel stations that has the cheapest fuel nearby.
For all the extra features listed below please buy the full version.
Fuel Watcher (Full version) features:
Tomorrow's prices are available from 2:45 pm.
User preferences: User preferences allows you to specify your favourite fuel brand, type and suburb for a quick search.
Coles Express and Woolworth Discount vouchers: User can specify discount and whether the application will reduce that price shown by that amount when searching for fuel.
Last fuel and brand: The application remembers the last fuel type used and brand searched.
MyFavourites: The user can nominate fuel type, brand and suburb as MyFavourite, when the Favourite button is clicked, this search will be activated.
MyBrand: User can specify a "non major brand" as MyBrand so that they can quickly lookup that brand on the main screen as the toolbar is not big enough to accommodate all the brands.
Email to a friend: In addition to being able to view the fuel station and find a route to the fuel station, the user can now also email the fuel station details to a friend.
What's New in Version 1.4
Added code to hide iAds when they are not available.
if you know which suburb you are looking for it is brilliant.
if you are on the way somewhere and need the closest location it finds it through GPS.
it finds it quickly and it saves me the pain of watching the news at night to find the cheapest fuel.
Get it now!
Awsum app. I drive a truck and so many servos around Perth don't have diesel, this app tells me where I can fill up. And where it's cheap too! It would be great if all of Australia had Fuelwatch so that this app worked outside of WA. Purchasing the full version now.
Lite version screenshots incorrect
False advertising - The Lite version screenshots shown in iTunes are for the full, paid version only. The upgrade link in the Lite version to the Full version does not work as the paid version is most times not available on iTunes, even if you search on the App Store. The Lite version does not support Favourites, Tomorrow, Settings, etc. Full version worked well - when it is available...
