WhatGas – free, or 79p for Pro (Apple, Android, Windows, Blackberry)

This app shows the petrol prices at nearby petrol stations, along with the dates that they were last updated. It’s a handy way of finding cheap fuel nearby, particularly in a built-up area or near a busy major road like a motorway. Sadly the prices for smaller, rural filling stations aren’t updated regularly enough to make the app all that useful.

That’s because the app is updated manually by its users – and there are fewer users in rural areas. Still, it is a handy tool for drivers who live in or near a town. Upgrading to pro adds extra functions including routes to a chosen filling station, plus it turns off adverts.
