CFN stations

Hey!

anyone else use CFN (Card Fueling Network) for their gasoline needs?

I have an Excel file with addresses and LAT/LONG co-ords, and/or a GPX file with all 2296 stations in the US.

REALLY handy when running low and you want to see how far the closest one is..

of course, it eats half my available space in the 276c, but what the hell.

CFN gives you better prices, one bill a month, and they track your mileage if you enable that feature. Finding the stations can be a bit of a chore, sometimes they are not easy to find.

More info

Hi

OK, I guess I am the only person using CFN with a GPS!

anyway, this site is very handy.

http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/geocoder/

It will take a list of addresses, look them up, and add Lat/Long data to the address.

It only does a thousand at a time, so for my issue I had to open 3 browser windows to crunch the 2300 addresses.

THEN, it has a "Convert to GPX" button after the Lat/Long has been added.

I KNOW some of you might need this..
