Alternative Fueling Station Locator
By National Renewable Energy Laboratory
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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.
What's New in Version 1.0.2
- Bug fixes
- iOS 8 compatibility
The better E85 apps out there! Has helped me find a nearby pump fairly easy, however, I wish the app could let me see locations in further distances and areas on the app than having to refresh or search. Otherwise, the app is great and better than others!
Always wants your location
I am so tired of apps that only have an options for"always" knowing your location. Apps do NOT need to always know. If programmed correctly they will have the option to use location only while using the app and not when you have the app closed. One reason is a privacy thing and the other is that it eats battery power even when not using the app.
Needs a 'Refresh' option when viewing map
Great app for finding nearby E85 stations, however it does not refresh its station list once the map is moved about. Makes it difficult to plan trips.
