The great thing about Google Maps is that not only it can be used for navigation to a known destination, the app can also help you find places nearby and explore the city. 

You can find hotels, bars, restaurants, parks and of course, fuel stations. Here’s how you find one using the phone app when you’re out.

  • Open Google Maps and tap on the Gas or Petrol option right under the search bar. 
  • You’ll see a list of gas stations in your vicinity. Head over to the closes one, and you’re good to go. 

Alternatively, you can also search for gas stations near me and Google Maps will bring up all stations in the area. You can tap the View List button to browse all stations at once or go through them one at a time. The navigation app also gives you the option to sort stations based on how close they are, whether they’re open or not or simply by their relevance to the search term.
