The Alternative Fueling Station Locator (And it’s iOS app) is already considered one of the best for mapping out alternative fuel stations in your area. And now the station locator will see further improvements to help the tool keep up with the ever increasing number of alternative fuel stations in the United States.
A change in the way data is collected and validated will now allow for new stations to be added to the locator in less time. Previously, it would take a number of months for a station to be added to the map, but now changes can be made at any time to reflect new additions. A new way of adding electric vehicle charging stations to the database will also help speed up the process for the EV community, allowing for a more up-to-date station locator.
Of those EV charging stations soon to be added, Tesla recently announced two new superchargers that will be installed in Macedonia, Ohio (Cleveland area) and Maumee, Ohio (Toledo area). These superchargers will be apart of Tesla’s greater I-80 effort to link New York to Los Angeles. These superchargers are free to use for Tesla owners, and are able to provide half a charge in 20 minutes. Checking on Tesla’s Supercharger Map, additional stations are tentatively planned in Ohio along I-70, including Columbus.
