A new free app called EzySt not only shows you where the cheapest fuel is near you, but also offers special discounts and can find the cheapest fuel on your planned ride route.
Unlike existing fuel price apps and schemes, it is not based on crowd-sourced information, but real-time data from local fuel retailers and Government reporting schemes.
The app is free and will work to show you cheap fuel near you and on your planned ride if you load your route into the map.
EzySt has completed a successful trial in Western Australia and is now available in Queensland and NSW with other states and territories to follow.
Sign up for EzySt deals
To access special fuel and other servo deals, you have to sign up.
However, if you value your privacy, you can still use all the other attributes of the app without signing up, such as route selection and choosing your preferred fuel type by RON value.
I entered my email details several days ago and have yet to receive any discount deals.
If you do get a deal, you don’t have to take it straight away, but can save it.
You can also sign out at any time and choose to have the app only work when being used or working in the background all the time, but that will reduce your phone’s battery.
Many riders don’t care about the price of fuel, only the quality for their pride and joy.
However, if you are interested in exploiting the fuel economy benefits of a motorcycle, this app could save you precious dollars.
EzySt app has been several years in the making and is the brainchild of Sydney-based company The Pricing Project who developed other fuel industry software such as PriceScape and PriceSync.
It is led by former Caltex executives Mick Jarvie and Ben Everitt, and technologist Damian Funnell.
However, it is not limited to Caltex.
Participating retailers include the EG Group (Caltex / Woolworths), independents Puma Energy, Pacific Petroleum, New Sunrise, and several dealers operating under nationally recognised brands.
EzySt is now available through the App Store and Google Play, and can be followed on Facebook at @EzySt.
