In order to clearly present service stations to the Wazer, it is best to follow the following instructions when naming service station brands:

  • Enter the FULL ADDRESS for the Service Station, to aid with routing the driver to the station. (not just the street name). For example:
 266-278 Hoddle St, Abbotsford, VIC
  • Enter the complete phone number including area code. Do not add any parenthesis or symbols.
03 9419 6494


  • Coles Express service stations should be saved as "Coles Express", NOT "Shell"
  • Caltex Woolworths service stations should be saved as "Caltex Woolworths", NOT "Caltex"

Although all Coles Express service stations are Shell, not all Shell service stations are Coles Express. This is the same case with Caltex Woolworths. Only Coles Express and Caltex Woolworths service stations provide fuel discounts to supermarket customers. If you list Coles Express service stations as Caltex, the driver will not know that they are entitled to a discount there with their shopping voucher. Simularly, if you list a Caltex as a Coles Express (and the service station isn't a Coles Express Caltex) then the driver will be upset that they could not get their discount there, and furthermore may have been able to drive to a cheaper station that does not offer the discount.
