Gas Stations History

1. Overview

The Gas Station feature gives Wazers the ability search for gas stations on their route and find the best priced fuel powered by community-shared gas prices. The gas station feature is activated in countries on a per-country basis, once 75% of the country’s gas stations are mapped in the Waze Map Editor (WME).

Find a complete list of countries with the GS feature open here.

2. Activating the Gas Stations feature in your country

  • Make sure that 75% of all the gas stations in the country are mapped in the WME.
  • Email waze-localization@google.com the total number of gas stations of the country: this information should be confirmed by providing an official document or link.
  • Follow the progress in this sheet, and let us know once the 75% has been reached!

3.2 Updating fuel type prices

Wazers can change the price of each fuel type in a specific gas station, and help other Wazers get the best gas price in their area.

  • Tap Report - Gas Prices
  • Choose the gas station that you would like to update prices for from the list
  • To update a price, tap the currently displayed price, type the accurate one and send.
