About this app

The Alternative Fueling Station Locator app helps you find fueling stations that offer electricity, natural gas, biodiesel, ethanol (E85), propane, and 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 25,000 alternative fueling stations throughout the country.

App is useful to find alternative fuel stations, although limited in functionality. It only loads stations if you enter a location. It would be useful if you could scroll the map to a location and have a 'search here' function like Google Maps. Also, it seems the Google Maps license of the developer has expired (again), since every time you open the app you get the message 'This page can't load Google Maps correctly.' Please fix.

Uses Google Maps API incorrectly (keeps showing an error all the time and says it’s for development purposes only). Overall, the app is pretty ugly and useless: pins on the map are hard to press, no filter on electric charger connector, only shows stations within a small radius, you can’t just scroll the map and see what is around.

If you look past the functional failure of the app, it has one huge benefit. Great source of information, especially on "non-network" (often free) EV charging points. Many fuels conveniently available. Far more extensive fuel Point Of Interest coverage than even Google has. But the functional failure is glaring and makes it obviously "broken". They're trying to use Google Maps but that costs money and they haven't paid. If this is public data, they should collaborate with Open Street Maps.
