Just tried that one for my area. Shows all filling stations but doesn't say whether they do LPG or not and doesn't show the cheaper ones like Flogas and Calor depots, etc.

However, I must admit that Richard's site has got ridiculously slow just recently, come on Richard, time for an update......

Try WhatGas petrol prices on the android market.

Has all the filling stations in my area on it including lpg.

It relies on users updating the pump prices on the app but is easy to use.

But I don't want filling stations including those that do LPG, I want only filling stations that do LPG. There's thousands of filling stations out there that I have no interest in whatsoever.

this seems to be a fully functioning website. faster then fillLPG.co.uk . it also has mobile apps for all the major phones.

Just needs people like us to keep it upto date.
It also seems to be very inaccurate as it shows lpg on sale on 4 local stations that do not sell it and haven't in the last few years (in fact i'm pretty sure most of them have never sold it that are listed on there).

Richard's site seems a lot better although its missing some its certainly the most accurate and comprenhensive i've come across and has far more sites than the only commercial one i've found (autogas) which is very limited in listing places that supply lpg. One thing which would improve Richards site is to be able to add more notes to stations and have them appear on the satnav (for example i remember finding a station on route down to bournemouth when on arrival discovered the pumps were broken (looked like someone tried to leave without disconnecting first). I know its possible but not sure how to do it personally as i've seen some poi files have phone numbers and similar info attached to them. But either way its still the most useful one i've found to use at present without directing me to stations which don't appear to exist (or stopped selling lpg or all fuel years ago as some others have done).

Is the web map interface broken again? i keep getting errors like this showing up (this is from Firefox, IE gives something fairly similar)

Error: missing } after property list

Just starting to wonder if its my pc playing up rather than the website as its been that way for a week now.

I can't see the stations when I click on the flag on the map so it won't let me update any prices. Haven't had any errors though. I'm running Firefox if it makes any difference.

Your doing better than me as i can't even get the map to come up (I can still update prices on stations which i've already updated but have one to confirm and a couple of other prices I can't update without selecting station off the map. And haven't got an android device to use that instead either unfortunately).

Guess I'll just have to wait and see if Richard sees this.
