The Station Locator hit a major milestone of more than 20,000 fueling stations for biodiesel, compressed natural gas, electricity, E85, hydrogen, liquefied natural gas, and propane.

Thanks to the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Alternative Fueling Station Locator tool, it’s easier than ever for drivers of alternative fuel and plug-in electric vehicles to find a place to fill up. This is due, in part, to hitting a recent milestone of more than 20,000 locations listed. The Station Locator, which is part of the Alternative Fuels Data Center, offers drivers several ways to search for and sort information: by location, such as near a specific address or zip code, or by vehicle technology.

Drivers on the go even have tools made just for them. Using the “Plan a Route” function, drivers can search for stations along a specific route between two destinations. The Station Locator is also available as a mobile website and iPhone app.
