Thanks to the iPhone’s built-in GPS system, drivers can now purchase a range of “Gas Station Finder Apps”. Whether you’re on the road for business, a family vacation, or simply just cruising around town, these nifty little apps can help you not only locate a gas station nearest to you, but also aid you in your search for the best prices at the pump near you as well. McGrath Kia knows just how important it is for you to keep your tank full without emptying your wallet, so to help you save money at the pump, your Cedar Rapids area Kia dealership reveals the “Top 5” for gas station apps.

Gas Station App Top 5:

Whether you’re looking for the best price at the pump or just in need of a quick fill up, these Top-5 gas finder apps will help you along the way.

  1. Smartfuel – This app offers you the ability to bookmark your favorite stations on your route and features an accurate and comprehensive station listing. Easy to use, Smartfuel is offered first as a 30-day free trial and requires a paid subscription after that. Pricing is reasonable (US $4.99 for 6 months, $14.99 for 24 months); if you’re a frequent traveler this subscription can pay for itself in no time at all.
  1. Fuel Finder – This easy-to-use app doesn’t require a subscription, only a $2.99 app fee, and assists you with its “On Fumes” feature that locates the closest gas station or gets you roadside assistance when you’re dangerously low on gas.
  1. GasBuddy – This is a completely free app that does help you locate gas stations, however on occasion it overlooks some stations and has a few errors in pricing
  1. RoadAhead – This is really more of an all-in-one-travel app rather than just a gas station app, as it also provides the listing of amenities available near highway exits and rest stops. Keep in mind though that its primary focus is what’s available at the rest stops and exits instead of just gas stations, so finding a station might take some extra scrolling.
  1. Fuel Smart Pro – This app offers solid features, comprehensive gas station listings, and accurate gas prices, but be warned that its interface is a little less than user-friendly.
