Please note: gas stations will not be Immediately available everywhere in clients. We're going to start rolling out the gas stations feature in the client country by country. As soon as we see (based your feedback) that we have enough stations to launch with in a given country, we'll release it there. It's hard to say exactly how many stations we need in each country to be ready there. If any of you know how many gas stations there are in your country - please let us know, this will allow us to estimate the percentage of stations we have.

In some countries, you’ll see that the editor is missing a list of local gas brands. Not to worry though. Just go to our Support Page and contact us via "Quick help" -> "Ask agent by email". Send us a message containing the missing gas brand and the country in which it should be added and we'll add it to the drop down menu in the editor as soon as we can.
