==Add a Gas Station==
A complete and accurate Gas Station Place allows drivers to search for their favorite brands of fuel, and the best fuel prices near their current location or route. More about the gas station functionality in the client can be found in the [[Gas Stations]] page.
Gas Stations Places have usually been imported from a 3rd party provider to the waze map, and may require significant updates to conform to Community standards.

=== Area or Point ===
Gas station places should be drawn as an area to the fenceline / curbline and should include all parking lots, convenience store buildings, car washes, etc, that are a part of the same business.
Most stations are small, stretching them to the limits should make them more visible on the client. Also, gas station areas are supposed to suppress some forms of automated reports. By covering the whole area, reports of people who park away from the pumps and get coffee with Waze running, in addition to those who just pump gas will be suppressed.
NOTE: The geometry of places imported from 3rd party sources is not reliable, and usually only represents the rough location of the gas station.
=== Best Practice Examples ===
==== Truck Stop / Travel Plaza ====
Notice in the example below that the truck entrance has a separate and unique entrance from the cars. Also, the restaurant on the property has its own Point Place.

==== Rest Area Gas Station ====[[Rest areas]] should have a separate and unique Gas Station Place. If a single rest area has more than one gas plaza, two stations may be used as shown below:[[File:RestAreaGas.png|700px|frameless|center|An example of Best Practices at a Travel Plaza]] ==== Store Associated Gas Station ====
