Default 2019 gas dock updates

Updates from WinniGas.com

I just received a notification of a change at the Winnipesaukee Pier:
"Winnipesaukee Gas - East Coast Flightcraft" is now known as "Flightcraft General" and is under new ownership.

Now that Ice-out has occurred, I hope everyone (including gas dock owner/operators) will start reporting current prices by using WinniGas. Please also report changes in prices. There's no harm in reporting the current price every time you visit a fuel dock, even if you are not purchasing fuel at the time.

Get the prices posted to WinniGas.com, it's easy to do, just click here:

https://winnigas.com/submitprice

Note that every price reported also generates a Tweet and Facebook post in an attempt to notify WinniGas followers. This also helps to generate exposure for each active gas dock. Please follow on Twitter @WinniGas or Facebook www.facebook.com/winnigas to receive active notification of price reports.

Which gas docks do you think will have the first to have their current prices posted or updated in 2019?

The standard six gallon boat gas tank with the big handle on top weighs about 40-lbs, and the Mobil Gas and convenience store across from the Meredith town docks is close enough. It also has 92-octane, coffee, an atm, a bathroom, the NY Times and the LaDaSun. No $3 atm surcharge fee for MVSB customers.

Right now, regular gas is something like 2.55/gal.

Any other car gas stations close to a public dock like this one?

So, what's the difference between car gas, and boat gas? Oh ...... about $1.25.

Someone once asked me to add the local gas stations that were trailer friendly for those that prefer to carry or trailer to their boat.

I could do that if there was enough call for it. But there are other apps for that, and I don't think WinniGas would be very helpful in that regard.

Actually there is. Gas docks typically sell mid grade gas (89 octane) and it is also treated with stuff like Starbrite for the ethanol. Does that fully explain the price difference, no, but they also have to make a little $$ too.

89 octane "car gas" is running right around $3.00 per gallon on average.

Since thread is about 2019 Updates, I thought I'd also throw in a new feature of WinniGas:

Lake Winnipesaukee Map of Wreck Dive Sites

This was discussed last year on the diving section of the forum. The idea was to provide an easy to find resource for boaters (and divers). I know it's not directly related to fuel docks on the lake, but it makes the list and map easy to locate, plus it can use the map features already on the WinniGas map (which provides an option to view a Navionics marine chart of the lake).

As always if there are any updates, changes or additions needed to this list, you can use the 'Contact Us' menu or let me know here via the forum.

I hope a few people find this feature useful, or at least interesting.

LLM is open. Just walk in and tell them you need gas. I will stop by today and check price. Also to see if my slip is still under water. Boat is in!

Feel free to get the prices posted to WinniGas.com, it's easy to do, just click here:

https://winnigas.com/submitprice

I tell those running the fuel docks that if they enter the prices themselves, especially when a price change occurs, it gives them free exposure to all the boaters on the lake.

Price reports there automatically go out via Facebook and Twitter.

Too much for me.

When you figure out what type of company you want to be, I may try again.

No worries.

By the way, I'm not a company. I haven't made a dime from any of this. In fact, it costs me some $$ and time to keep it running.

I took over WinniGas to keep it alive as I always thought it was a useful resource for boaters and I didn't want to see it die when the original owner wanted to 'retire'.

The nice thing about the wreck map, similar to the gas map, if you don't need it, or click on it, you will never even know it's there. It doesn't load or slow anything down. So feel free to ignore it.

I've had people tell me that the gas map is also not needed, as they know where the gas docks are located. I've also had people tell me they found the map useful. It seems not everyone has been on the lake their whole life.

Thanks for the feedback, I do appreciate it!

Hey, I just saw the gas map--that's a GREAT feature! I don't go outside Moultonborough Bay a ton, but there have been times I've realized I was lower on petrol than I thought and would have liked to know the nearest gas dock.

Thanks for this, and thanks for all the other functions!

I'm glad you found it useful! I've heard a very similar story a couple of times now.

FWIW, the Bizer chart is also a "gas map", among many other things as well, ie: restaurants, repair facility, marine store, etc... Let's face it, when you are low on fuel, it's NOT the price of fuel you worry about, it's where the CLOSEST gas dock is!!

You are 100% correct! Bizer has a lot of useful resources on his map!

WinniGas isn't always about who has the lowest price.

It also shows which stations have certain additives, which people may prefer.

It lists if a station has a ships store, perhaps with ice cream for the kids, or drinks, etc.

It has the gas map, to help people find the closest gas, or to find a station they were not aware of.

It has phone numbers that you can easily click to dial, to help allow people to easily call without having to enter phone numbers as a boat bobs around in the water. Perhaps they are running late and need to ask them to stay open for 10 more minutes. True story: I was on a friend's boat that had to call and ask a gas dock attendant to wait for us as one engine ran out of fuel and the other was running on fumes!.

Every boater on the lake should have a copy of Bizer's map!

Thanks for the report! It sounds like a site glitch if it can't look up a database entry.

I just tested it and it seems to be all ok now, so I'm not sure what happened. I'm on a shared server to keep costs down. Rarely there are issues like this and trying later simply works ok.

Could you please try again?

Or tell me what were you trying to post (price and location) and I can test it.

Thanks again for the report.

Thanks for the report and for letting me know about the issue.

The site seems to work well. This is the first report of trouble I've seen, so hopefully it won't happen again.

You highlighted a sentence in Rich's answer to you that in essence said some people don't need the map because they know where the gas docks are. I guess this comment is designed to support your position. What you didn't highlight was the next sentence which essentially says others say they find the map useful.

I guess if you don't need it, don't use the feature. It is nice to know that if you ever do need to find gas in an unfamiliar part of the lake, it's there.

That's cool thanks.

Also, I thought there was a ship off the North shore of Birch/Steamboat that was in fairly shallow water that you could see just by snorkeling?
