Petty helps Australian drivers find petrol nearby, view trends, and stay up to date with real-time average prices. It's useful for when you're in an unknown location, or when you just want to check the price of petrol at the station up the road.
Real-time prices, trends, and history are available for NSW, QLD, SA, WA, TAS, and the ACT.
Petty stands out by using the most accurate data, collected by the state governments, and updated in real time as stations around the country change their prices at the pump.
Use Petty to find nearby petrol, view prices at a station, keep up with average prices and price trends for the last 90-days, and compare prices between stations. You can also see how much you'll save by filling up at one station compared to another.
The ACCC estimates drivers who time their purchases of petrol and choose to buy from the lowest priced retailer can save $10 to $15 per 60-litre tank. (news.com.au, 2017) Petty can help with this, by always keeping you in the loop with up-to-date prices.

Ratings and Reviews
It’s a nice looking app, but does it surpass what system I already use. Hmm, not quite. To be fair, what I want isn’t what the typical user wants.
Price listing isn’t quite in order from cheapest to most expensive. Although the app does actually retrieve the correct price, that cheaper price didn’t take precedence over the second station in the listing. Now that may be down to an additional metric, that being distance. Furthermore, that may be advantageous.
Would I recommend it? You know it does it’s job and for those without the technical mumbo jumbo it makes it easy peesy but for me I’m looking for a particular price. The demo mode could have shown me some of the metrics involved, it doesn’t and I can only guess the metrics.
Great app however. If you need an app to find you cheap fuel, use it, pay for it.
Preferred fuel glitch
I think the app is great particularly the Siri integration. I mean isn’t that when you want to know prices, while you drive so voice makes sense. Or CarPlay access would be nice too. So far my gripe is the glitch that resets my preferred fuel type to U91 in favourites. It has also reset in settings but not consistently. Look forward to seeing this properly available without subs.
Developer Response ,
Hey, thanks for the mostly positive feedback.
It's not a glitch. It resets only if you aren't subscribed. By subscribing, Petty will remember this preference along with a whole bunch of other benefits.
If you have any questions feel free to get in touch via the contact button in the app.
Accurate and local Aussie customer service
I have tried many other ‘free’ (add sponsored) apps that are good but Petty is by far the best. It’s clean and best of all spot on accurate. Having an app also on watch takes convenience to the next level when wanting to quickly find nearest petrol station.
The app developer remains passionately involved in developing and responds quickly to app suggestions
Five stars well deserved 👍🏼
