Cool app but

Cool app but it does not tell how they calculate your refund. Wa state tax is .51 cents but when I submit a receipt they are only giving me about .12 cents a gallon back?

Developer Response ,

Hi Germaine,

I'm sorry to hear the app seems misleading, you are right we don't describe the math, and we should (we will add it to our list of features). But the amount of the refund matches exactly what the state will refund. To be clear, that state taxes $0.494 per gallon (see, however, you have to subtract the sales tax. So the math looks like this: StateFuelTax($0.494) - (AverageCostPerGallon ($2.74) - StateFuelTax ($0.494) - FederalFuelTax ($0.184)) * AverageStateSalesTax (8.5%) = $0.318 per gallon. Plus an additional $0.01 less due to the coastal protection fund.

If you are seeing only $0.12 a gallon, please let use know by emailing and we can see if we can rectify the situation. But we only take a 20% fee on what is refunded from the state, only after the state directly refunds you, so you can be sure we are not deceiving you.

Once you feel like the amount of the refund is clear, we would appreciate any adjustments to your review so that future users are not confused about amount of the refund.

Simple, user friendly, and saves $$$

This app is excellent!! I already spend enough cash trying to keep my boat running. It’s really refreshing to have a simple way to get some of my money back in my pocket. Would 10/10 recommend this app if you are going be spending any amount of time at the fuel pump this summer.

Super easy to use

I love how simple Gallons is to use. It really makes it about as easy as it can be to get back the fuel tax refund. It’s like free money. They’ve thought of everything to make it as easy as possible to get money back. I love the direct deposit into my bank. I use Gallons every time I fill up my boats.
