    Alternative Fueling Station Locator App

    In a bid to bring consumers more transportation options that save money at the pump, the Energy Department  launched a new mobile app today, to help drivers find stations that provide alternative fuel for vehicles. A mobile version of the Alternative Fueling Station Locator website, It is just one of the latest tools the Energy Department has made available to help drivers find the right vehicle and fuel that suits their needs

    Developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory with support from the Energy Department, the Alternative Fueling Station Locator app provides information on more than 15,000 stations across the country. Users can search for stations that offer:

    • Electricity
    • Biodiesel (B20)
    • Natural gas (compressed and liquefied)
    • Ethanol (E85)
    • Hydrogen
    • Propane
       

    After the user selects a fuel, the app maps the stations closest to his or her current location, as well as the phone numbers and operating hours. Using the app's filters, drivers can also search for stations that meet certain parameters, such as whether the station is open to the public and what payment methods it accepts.

    The Alternative Fueling Station Locator app is available for the iPhone and iPad at no cost from the Apple App Store.
