The Alternative Fueling Station Locator app helps you find fueling stations that offer electricity, natural gas, biodiesel, E85, propane, or hydrogen.

Use your current location or enter a custom location to find the 20 closest stations within a 30-mile radius. View the stations on a map or see a list of stations ordered by distance from your location. Select your alternative fuel of choice and adjust the custom filters to fit your needs.

Select a station from the map or list to view contact info and other details:

- address, phone number, and hours of operation
- payment types accepted
- public or private access
- special services
- compression (natural gas)
- vehicle size access (natural gas)
- number and types of chargers (electric)
- blends available (biodiesel)
- blender pumps (ethanol)

The app draws information from the U.S. Department of Energy's Alternative Fuels Data Center, which houses the most comprehensive, up-to-date database of alternative fueling stations in the United States. The database contains location information for more than 15,000 alternative fueling stations throughout the country.

The best way to find hydrogen stations

This this app is the best way to find hydrogen stations of all the apps that are out there now. The best part is you can easily get directions to the stations with two clicks. The one thing the app is missing is the actual station information in terms of how much hydrogen is available on a per station basis. If the app developers could include SOSS information on a per station basis it would blow all the other apps out of the water. It would also take an incredible amount of frustration away from obtaining SOSS information from the California Fuel Cell Partnership’s invaluable but cumbersome station information form because it’s browser only. Kudos to the programmers. This is an incredibly well written app.

So helpful

I’m done using google maps to find me my diesel pumps when I’m out and about in an area I don’t know. I was low on fuel, trying to find a diesel pump somewhere, and having no luck at all. I pulled over and I found this outdated looking application from the iPhone 3G days. Luckily, this app works like a banger! Sees your current location and links up to Apple Maps (make an option for google maps) for directions to the gas station! BOOM! Easy and done! Select your fuel and drive to the nearest location via what the apps tells ya to!

Saved me!

I picked up a 500hp turbocharged 99 Civic from Indiana ~370 miles from home in southeast Michigan. I wasn’t sure how I’d find E85 for this vehicle on the drive home, but after a quick google search I was directed to the Alternative Fueling Stations app. It’s not 100% accurate, but provides you a phone number to dial ahead and double check that the station truly carries the fuel you desire/require for your machine.

I came to find out that the majority of Meijer gas stations offer E85 fuel. Major win!
