Have a look at the PGPSW Costco POIs:

https://www.pocketgpsworld.com/modules.php?name=POIs

Costco is found in "Shopping - Other". If you are aware of any other Costco locations then please add them to the PGPSW ones as they are community updated for anybody to use.

Regards,

Per Privateer, there is a POI category for CostCo, but it is for CostCo stores and doesn't make the distinction whether the store sells fuel or not. There is no sub-category under Fuel for CostCo (not that I am requesting one - just clarifying previous post back to OP's question).

Hi John,

Many thanks for the clarification of the difference between CostCo stores and CostCo fuel. I don't have any CostCo stores/fuel in my area so I don't use them. Thumbs Up

It would make sense to a sub-category of "CostCo fuel" to the category of Fuel. Would anybody like to submit one or more?

Regards,

I'd never heard of COSTCO Fuel stations before today!

A quick search revealed https://www.costco.co.uk/fuel-locations

Surely, even if you travel extensively any saving is negated by going out of your way to get to a Costco fuel pump?

Well I suppose if you do a lot of travelling and you're passing you've lucked in but yes, fuel shopping tends to be a pointless exercise without some real accurate planning.

I use the PetrolPrices app, which you can get for either Android or iOS and it gives prices for both unleaded petrol and diesel.

I find that PetrolPrices is useful for ensuring that my usual local fuel station is the cheapest but the app is really useful for finding the nearest but cheapest fuel station when I'm travelling.

Regards,

Yes, but don't forget that you can also simply download 'Fuel' as a whole Category and you know where the nearest fuel is (regardless of brand) without necessarily only needing the Costco sub category.

COSCO Have them listed on their web site.
https://www.costco.co.uk/store-finder

Select (filter options) and (Fuel station)

We always use them now as they are normally the cheapest for quality fuel.

MaFt and Richard,

Would one of you please add the sub-category of CostCo to the Fuel category? Then BritBrat and DAN_UK (OP) can add all of the CostCo Fuel stations that they know.

Yes, by using the whole PocketGPSWorld Fuel POI category and the PetrolPrices app you'll always know where the cheapest fuel is and how to get there! Thumbs Up

My post above is for the Costco fuel station website and saves wading through filters.

Quality fuel in what way? Supermarket fuel is supermarket fuel and all fuel sold meets the minimum standard so is Costco claiming something more? Have you not been watching this week's BBC1 Rip Off Britain programmes which have been discussing fuel contamination?

Just following up on this request as Fuel:CostCo hasn't been added yet.

Here's the data from their website map. I'll try get this sorted at some point and pull out the different categories.

https://pastebin.com/HGL08Z99

It's in JSON format so should be pretty easy to read/parse.

However I have a load of Australian and Estonian cameras to work through - so if someone wants to make a start on Costco then just reply with any work that's been done so I don't duplicate it.
