Fuelcheck bears fruit in the Apple Isle

Hundreds of thousands more drivers can now benefit from the power of the NSW Government’s FuelCheck app, with the technology now live in Tasmania. 

Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello said a joint partnership between the NSW and Tasmanian Governments means more families will benefit from the technology and save money.

“This is great news for both Tasmanians and future visitors, who will be able to find the best bargain at the bowser in the palm of their hand,” Mr Dominello said.

“The free app has been a game changer in NSW with almost 1.16 million drivers downloading it, giving it a customer satisfaction of 94 per cent. That many people can’t be wrong and I’m delighted to see it embraced by other States.

“This joint partnership is a great example of interstate collaboration to make life easier for people and help ease cost of living.

“The only jurisdictions without similar fuel transparency schemes are Victoria and ACT and our door remains open to them.

“FuelCheck takes power away from big oil by giving drivers a bird’s-eye view of the market. Drivers who use the app regularly can save hundreds of dollars a year.”

The Tasmanian Government partnered with the NSW Government on a fee for service to see the technology rolled out.

 Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation Kevin Anderson encouraged NSW families to download the app in advance of the start of school holidays this week.

 “So many families will be hitting the road and travelling across NSW in the next couple of weeks. Do yourself a favour – get the app and save money,” Mr Anderson said.

 “If the price at the pump doesn’t match the price at the bowser, drivers should report this to NSW Fair Trading.”
