Do You Fuel Your Car With Alternative Fuels? These Apps Are For You

The folks at Iconosys are at it again. They’ve designed a suite of  great apps that serves a great purpose. This time their target is those who power their cars with alternative fuel. Are you running your Mercedes with bio-fuel? Do you need a place to plug in your car? This is for you!

The new Alternative Fuels app by Iconosys gives you a GPS guide to finding refueling locations, even on your travel routes.

The Alternative Fuels app covers just about every way to power your car outside of typical petroleum. If you fuel your vehicle with alcohols, compressed natural gas, electricity, hydrogen, liquified natural gas, liquified petroleum gas, liquids made from coal, and biodiesel, it’s in the app.

More after the break


 “We must stop our dependence on foreign oil.  It is very encouraging to see our nation embrace energy alternatives to petroleum, and all Americans need to work together to help save our environment,” commented Wayne Irving II, Iconosys CEO and Founder, and creator of the “Alternative Fuels” directory apps. Continued Irving, “Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to take your alternative energy-powered vehicle on a road trip (e.g. outside the car’s typical fueling range), with the peace of mind that comes with knowing exactly where the vehicle’s re-fueling or charging stations would be located, and the critical information that you would plan your exact route.

Aside from alternative fueling locations the Alternative Fuels app has some other great features.

  • Saving you time and money by assisting you in finding the most convenient fueling stations/charging points for your alternative fuel vehicle.
  • Anytime and anywhere, allowing you to search for nearby businesses that provide alternative fuel station locations by zip code, or by simply dragging your desired map location, and providing you specific driving directions to fueling or charging locations in your target area with Driving Directions, website addresses and facility hours and facility phone numbers.
  • All “Alternative Fuel” listings are common among the suite of apps, enabling you to share information with your friends/contacts about other fueling points, and in this way both support other alternative fuel enthusiasts/small businesses, and, more generally, assist our nation in its fight to break the dependence on foreign oil.
  • By clicking on the map’s location for other fueling/charging points, you can see the different deals and amenities that each location may be offering to get your business.  For example, do they offer discounts or special deals for other types of shopping (e.g. hot food, coffee, entertainment?)
  • Adjust the map to reveal the fueling points in a particular target area by simply adjusting a target zip code in the search button.
  • Popular ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE numbers, for popular electric and hybrid makes, are conveniently loaded inside the app, in the event you have a highway safety or fueling emergency.
  • A wide selection of the nation’s fueling and charging points are being added daily.
