How to find the nearest gas station on Google Maps
It’s simple to locate the nearest gas station when your automobile runs out of gas. You may probably think of one or two close by, but what if you aren’t in an area you are familiar with? Finding the nearest petrol station in this situation might take a long time. However, Google Maps can provide you with all of the necessary gas information.
You’ve undoubtedly used Google Maps to obtain directions someplace but not to locate the local gas station. The good news is that it’s simple, and you’ll have no trouble figuring out how to do it.
Find a Gas Station That Is Open on your phone
Open Google Maps to get started. Tap the Gas option after the app is launched.
Google Maps will show you all the nearest gas stations when you press on the gas option. You’ll notice filters at the top that you may use to find a particular gas station. You may, for example, tell Google Maps only to show you gas stations that you’ve been to previously, that you haven’t been to before, or those are now open. Tap More filters if you don’t see any filters you can use.
You may sort the petrol stations by Relevance or Distance in the Filters section. There’s also a part where you can check which gas stations are open right now, as well as whether they’re Any or Custom. In the Custom option, you may check which gas stations will be open at a given hour or day. This is an excellent option if you’re working late and want to know which gas station will be open if something happens.
Don’t forget to touch the blue Apply button at the bottom right after you’ve set up the criteria for what you’re looking for. The results will fluctuate, and you will only see the ones you wish to view. The results will provide you the choice to share the information and directions and a phone number for that specific service station.
