Letters to the editor from February

At the start of each month we respond to positive and negative feedback collected from the past month. We rely on this feedback to better this site so please hit the feedback buttons at the bottom of each page where you think we can do better.

Here’s some of the feedback received in February.

Great for doing my BAS

Nice one! If we can make any changes to better accomodate this use please let us know in the comments on this Post.

With the graph, if a figure for the average could be provided for the timeframe that’s being filtered, that would be most helpful. Averages will change if the period of time being used.

Thanks for this suggestion! If you can drop any comments below in this Post or links to graphs showing this we can use that as a reference guide. Adding a simple moving average based on the current graph view is easy enough but we want to be sure we’re all on the same page.

I think I dropped my credit card outside the Rutherglen service station but the phone no is incorrect. Heather

We hope you found your credit card Heather! We’ve gone ahead and updated our phone number for Metro Petroleum Rutherglen as well as set a task to sync any phone number changes weekly via the Google Maps Place API. 🙂

STILL WAITING FOR YOU TO HAVE METRO FUEL STATION MIAMI PRICE

METRO FUEL MIAMI STILL NOT BEING SHOWN?

MIAMI METRO FUEL NOT ON LIST MOUNTAIN VIEW AVE MIAMI

MIAMI VILLAGE SHOPPING CENTRE FUEL

Message received. Unfortunately while Metro Fuel Miami is included in the Fuel Prices Queensland (FPQ) dataset and listed on our site this station is yet to submit a price feed; the grace period for fuel stations to get onboard is 21 April, 2019 (Easter) so they still have some time to organise their price feed.

A few things we can immediately do better is:

  • [  ] make it easier for site visitors is to get in contact with DNRME so that they’re aware of currently non-participating fuel stations
  • [x] add stations without fuel prices to the All Stations view on the City and Suburb templates; these stations show as grey map markers and are listed in the “Inactive / offline fuel stations near XYZ” section
  • [  ] improve our feedback system so that site visitors can receive replies from us if they choose to provide their e-mail address.

Be more accurate with your readings

To have a list of Fuel stations s and their prices. Considering there are lot less now. Hofm radio station does a very good job in relating fuel prices, but does not happen regularly unfortunately. Bennetts would have to be the most expensive all the time.

There is no official data source for retail fuel prices in Tasmania. Due to this there is no quality measure in the listed prices for Tasmania, this limitation affects all fuel price comparison website.

As soon as an official data source is made available by the Tasmanian Government for retail fuel prices (like WA, NSW, NT and QLD have) we’ll tie it in here. Contact your State Government and urge them to get onboard.
