FUELCHECK: THE CHEAPEST PETROL PRICES AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
Local motorists will now be able to find the cheapest petrol at every service station in NSW thanks to the state government’s new initiative, FuelCheck.
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said FuelCheck is the first service of its kind in Australia and will change the way drivers buy petrol by providing accurate, real-time fuel price information at every service station across NSW. It will be accessible on any device connected to the internet, including smartphones, tablets, desktop computers and laptops.
“In our area, fuel prices can vary dramatically from one service station to another. FuelCheck will allow drivers to find and purchase the cheapest fuel at any time,” Mr Anderson said.
“Motorists can also get directions to any service station and search for fuel by type or brand.
“Importantly, if the price at the pump doesn’t match what is shown on FuelCheck, customers will be able to submit a complaint directly to NSW Fair Trading.”
“The aim of this program is to boost competition in the fuel sector and deliver a better deal to NSW motorists.”
Service stations will be required to update petrol price changes as soon as they make changes, so customers can compare prices.
FuelCheck is currently in Beta version so consumers are encouraged to offer feedback to NSW Fair Trading regarding the functionality of the website.
