FuelCheck Video - Member Diann Melas and Colin Long
FuelCheck Launched at SSA Member Site
The SSA last week (Wednesday August 24) in conjunction with service station group member Gascorp, hosted Victor Dominello, Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation and NRMA President Kyle Loads at the Budget Service station in Erskineville, in launching the new NSW Government FuelCheck app.
The launch was covered by a large media presence representing newspapers, radio and television.
The NSW Government has regulated that all service stations in NSW register and be part of a publically accessed application showing in real time the price of all fuel types sold at all service stations in the state. The service station members and operators, through hard work and diligence, are cooperating in this application, which allows the consumer to check at any time, the retail prices of all fuel sold through retail outlets in the state.
Your SSA, in conjunction with a delegation of members, initiated a number of meetings with senior officers of Fair Trading (11/8/16), including a meeting with Minister Dominello (19/8/16), to iron out a number of member concerns, prior to the 24/8/16 launch.
FuelCheck is accessible on any device connected to the internet, including smartphones, tablets, desk top computers and laptops. FuelCheck uses information from cellular, Wi-Fi, and Global Positioning System (GPS) networks.
This Finance Department of NSW produced video footage covers the launch. Minister Dominello appears, as does the President of the NRMA Roads and Motorists Association Kyle Loads, together with comments from MTA SSA Division Colin Long and SSA member Diann Melas-Operations Manager of Gascorp Group.

The Department of Fair Trading will also begin enforcing compliance with the new provisions in the Fair Trading Act. Service station operators who breach these provisions may be issued with a penalty notice of $550 for each offence.
Any member with any compliance concerns can contact the MTA NSW Division Manager
