About WA Fuel Finder
This site provides an alternative view of fuel price data in Western Australia allowing you to search by geographical location through an interactive map. It utilizes fuel price data from the Department of Consumer and Employment Protection's FuelWatch and the Google Maps mapping service. It is not affiliated with FuelWatch or Google.
FuelWatch maintains an up-to-date fuel price database for petrol stations in Western Australia as well as making available the following day fuel prices by 2:30PM today. WA Fuel Finder retrieves fuel prices from FuelWatch daily through their public data feeds and the following day fuel prices are generally available on WA Fuel Finder by 5PM.
Fuel searches on this site can be done by West Australian suburb name, postcode, or exact addresses, if there aren't any stations in a searched suburb it will attempt to locate fuel stations and prices within a 5km range. You can also save a location as identified by the map after panning/zooming etc.
