Parliamentary Secretary for the Illawarra and South Coast Gareth Ward and Member for South Coast Shelley Hancock today announced that motorists across the region could save hundreds of dollars at the bowser by using the New South Wales Government’s new FuelCheck app, which provides live fuel prices and much more in real-time for all NSW service stations.
Mr Ward said that the app is a game changer for motorists and enables them to find the best deal by price, location, fuel type and brand.
“By giving motorists a bird’s-eye view of the market they can find the cheapest fuel anywhere in the state, providing them with much needed relief at the hip pocket,” he said.
“The app includes all of the popular website functions with multiple exciting new features to make finding the best value for money even easier.
“If the price at the pump does not match what is shown on the app, motorists can make a complaint directly to NSW Fair Trading. The app is available in the App Store and Google Play and is compatible with all iOS and Android phones,” Mr Ward said.
Mrs Hancock said that the app includes a Favourite Stations function, which allows users to save their favourite petrol stations and receive a notification when the petrol reaches their chosen price.
“A My Trip function utilises Google Maps to enable users to find the cheapest petrol station on their journey and direct them to the station,” she said.
“The app also includes a Trends page, which shows the cheapest day of the week to fill up, the day’s price range, and allows users to track the changing petrol price over a day, week, month or year.
“Since its launch in August 2016, the FuelCheck website has had over 2.6 million visits and the recently implemented feedback function has seen 95 per cent positive reviews from happy customers. Motorists simply love FuelCheck and will no doubt love the app,” Mrs Hancock said.
