FuelCheck goes live in the nation's capital
Motorists visiting the Australian Capital Territory will now be able to search and compare petrol prices in real-time, with the nation leading FuelCheck app expanding across the NSW border again.
Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government Victor Dominello said the app would display prices for the 60 plus service stations in the ACT to help motorists get the best price at the bowser.
“We know how porous the ACT and NSW border is so this is a win for residents of both NSW and the capital territory. I congratulate the Chief Minister and his Government for embracing this technology,” Mr Dominello said.
“Today’s announcement builds on the Tasmanian Government utilising this marvelous technology in 2020.
“There is often more than a 20-cent per litre difference in the price of petrol between service stations and using FuelCheck regularly can save you in excess of $800 per year.
“Since it went live in NSW in 2017, the app has had more than 2.2 million downloads, with 93 per cent of motorists giving it the thumbs up.
“I look forward to the app being adopted by other states on the eastern seaboard for the mutual benefit of our citizens”.
The app will list prices for Unleaded and Ethanol and Premium fuel types as well as Diesel. The technology will be initially piloted for six months in the ACT.
FuelCheck is one of more than 70 ways households can save money and boost their budget through the NSW Government.
