As petrol prices remain at record highs, the Department of Customer Service’s FuelCheck app has proved its worth, clocking in more than two million downloads.

Welcoming the app’s success, Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government, Victor Dominello said using the technology regularly could save motorists more than $800 a year.

“It’s free, easy to use and gives you real-time petrol price information where ever you are across the State,” Mr Dominello said.

“My message to motorists is simple – download FuelCheck and reap the rewards,” he said.

Minister for Fair Trading, Eleni Petinos said the technology provided consumers with reliable information on where to get the best deals at the bowser.

FuelCheck provides consumers with the most comprehensive and reliable information on how to access lower petrol prices,” Ms Petinos said.

“If motorists notice the price at the pump does not match what is shown on the app they can make a complaint directly to NSW Fair Trading,” she said.

“There is often a more than 25-cent gap in prices between service stations in the same suburb, which means if you fill up a 65-litre vehicle, you could save more than $16 by filling up at the cheaper station.”

Ms Petinos said the app included a ‘Favourite Stations’ function, allowing users to save their favourite petrol stations, and a ‘Trends’ page, showing the cheapest day of the week to fill up and the day’s price range.
