    I was thinking of starting a thread similar to the insurance quotes one.

    One could relay station, location and at least the fuel price they bought.

    if you use waze theres a option there for fuel prices, its usually pretty up to date.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,340 ✭✭✭ Alkers


    I have an Applegreen app which does the same as pumps but it doesn't seem to be always available on the play store


  • Registered Users Posts: 133 ✭✭ JustARandomGuy


    Pumps is notorious for working and not working all the time. Sit tight and it's probably going to be back up and running in a week

    It's my go to website for getting my fuel. 140€ petrol applegreen clonsilla rd yesterday.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,897 ✭✭✭ KOR101


    Yes, really missing it.

    It's been down for a few weeks now, and the map hasn't worked for months.

    Strange that nobody knows whats going on.

    The Applegreen app shows competitor prices.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,089 ✭✭✭ WestWicklow1


    I think the problem is with the underlying pumps.ie rather than the app.

    The app's author's email address is freely available on the play store so I guess it's ok to put it here.....

    Send an email to [email protected] and alert/ask him if he can do something about it.

    I suspect he doesn't own pumps.ie so he may or may not be able to help.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,147 ✭✭✭ horse7


    Apple green clonsilla rd petrol 1.42€

    They even show a "lower price" icon even if it's one of their competitors.

    I tried Waze, it does have pump prices but they are not accurate. Stations around me were showing as "1.4" or "1.3" which is supposed to mean 1.40 and 1.30 respectively. I don't know why they don't show the actual price as presumably the Wazers (users) were entering the full price, i.e. 1.42. Anyway I went to the 1.3 one and it was 1.44!



    I think Drivvo is a paid app.


    Sadly fuel prices are climbing steadily again and of course we are also getting ripped off with a stations slow response to falling oil prices and a very fast response when the price increases. The rise and fall of the pump price should be aligned with the oil price, it's not and there is no legislation to provide for that unfortunately.


    Did anyone get a reply from the pumps.ie people?

    anyone take a guess of the national average petrol & diesel price??

    The price paid by the retailer is not directly linked to the price of crude oil. In the summer petrol goes up becase of the US driving season, they like to drive for their vacation. While in winter diesel goes up as its used for heating. Priced can also change depending on which refineries are going into or exiting maintenance. So the retail prices of oil are only partially correlated to the price of crude.

    It's often gone down for a few days.. maybe even a week , but it's never been down for this long.

    I think the Dev has given up on it.

    I sent him a DM.. I got no response.

    It's dead

    It's all down to the inputter. There's only me and 2 others in this area who update prices. The last week or two prices have been changing daily by a cent or 2, depending what next door is charging. Some stations in the Sligo area haven't been updated for weeks and are showing about 8c under the average.
