jonherries: Does anyone know of an app that tells you where the cheapest petrol is?

IIRC there used to be a website.... Cant remember the name.

It could be difficult to keep such an app accurate. For example at the moment Z in Whakatane is 6c/L cheaper than what is listed on the Z website. Taking local variance into account would be a nightmare.

I use waze. It seems to have up to date gas prices.
It helped me find my $2.01 petrol station in paraparumu. Its nearly 10cents cheaper than anywhere else.

Can't be arsed with discount vouchers anymore.

OK, that's neat. According to the site it uses data from fuel cards. It has the correct $2.069 for the local Z!

I'll have to trust you there! I've installed Waze and I'm finding it far from intuitive and can't figure out how to get prices out of it at all...
