The '''Gas Station ''' Place marks a well-defined area characterized by a fuel pumps and a cashier.
==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 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.
