Fuelcards.net launches iPhone app

Fuelcards.net has launched a new free iPhone application which uses GPS location data to find nearby service stations and identify which fuel cards can be used.

Launched by Fuelcards.net, the new fuel station locater app works across the Keyfuels, Texaco Fastfuel, Shell & Esso fuel card networks. Using this app, drivers can find local service stations reducing the risk of running out of fuel. Drivers have the option of setting location via GPS or manually inputting a town, city or postcode meaning journeys can be planned via appropriate fuelling stations while en-route or at the final destination.

The app links to over 5,000 service stations across the UK which carry all major cards including Shell, Esso, Texaco and Keyfuels and include popular brands such as Morrisons, Somerfields, Murco, Total and Jet. Using a simple interface, users can set preferences such as; proximity to location in either miles or kilometres, 24 hour service or HGV access.

Suitable service stations can be displayed as either a list with address and telephone number or pinpointed on a map outlining distance from current location – drivers have the option to use their GPS to link directly to Google Maps for directions.

“This will be a revolution to drivers who travel the country on a daily basis,” said Sarah Adams of Fuelcards.net. “Our main aim is to provide UK businesses with useful tools and solutions to make re-fuelling around the UK as cheap and simple as possible.”
