Finding Bio-Fuel with Google Maps


Owners of cars that have been converted into bi-fuel vehicles can often have difficulties finding gas stations that sell compressed natural gas (CNG). This can be particularly true if drivers are on long journeys in areas that they are unfamiliar with. In Europe routeCNGfinder can help drivers plan routes that take them via gas stations that sell CNG.

The service currently works in Austria, France, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Czech Republic and Switzerland. RouteCNGfinder uses the Google Maps API's driving directions service to show a searched route with staged directions. In addition it will show all the gas stations along the route.

Users of the map can print out routes and save the gas stations found along the route or nearby gas stations as a Kml or CSV file.
