Mobile App Helps You Find Alternative Fueling Stations

Nov. 12, 2013
This free app allows iPhone users to select an alternative fuel and find the 20 closest stations within a 30-mile radius.

iPhone users can now download an app called Alternative Fueling Station Locator, thanks to the DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). NREL developed the mobile app for DOE’s Clean Cities program.

This free app allows iPhone users to select an alternative fuel and find the 20 closest stations within a 30-mile radius. Users can view the locations on a map or as a list containing station addresses, phone numbers, and hours of operation. You even have the choice to use GPS to find your location.

Alternative fuels to select from include:

  • Biodiesel
  • Compressed natural gas
  • Electric
  • Ethanol (E85)
  • Hydrogen
  • Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)
  • Propane

The app draws information from Clean Cities’ Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC), which houses the most comprehensive, up-to-date database of alternative fueling stations in the United States. The database contains information for more than 15,000 alternative fueling stations throughout the country.

The Alternative Fueling Station Locator app is available through Apple’s App Store.
