The alternative fuel station locator uses an address based search to find alternative fueling stations including E85 Ethanol, Biodiesel, Compressed Natural Gas, Liquified Petroleum Gas, Liquified Natural Gas, Electricity, and Hydrogen. The Station Locator also lists stations by state and stations along a route.



Overview

The Alternative Fueling Station Locator, part of the Department of Energy's Alternative Fuels and Advanced Vehicles Datacenter, allows users to search for alternative fueling stations (including electric charging, E85, natural gas, and others) near an address or in a state. In addition, the locator will map a route between two locations and show alternative fuels within a specified distance of that route.
