I have been looking for a nationwide listing of Chevron stations and only found one for Florida and one for Chevron Diesel in ID, OR and WA.
There has been previous discussion about this project.....has anything been completed or is it in the works ?
This week, I emailed Chevron Customer Service requesting some type of electronic file with the station's street addresses and explained why I was wanting it with a link to this site. I have yet to hear back from them. I spoke to a CS rep and she told me they did not have a list.
On their website, you can only search for zip codes and also for stations along a route and it only will display a few at a time. To get a complete listing, or even one for the Great State of Alabama would involve a lot of copying and pasting unless someone knows a trick of how to get that data out easily.
I did make an interesting discovery.....if you perform a search and then on then right-click on the results and choose view source, it gives the data PLUS the LAT and LONG which is not provided on the website.
Anyone have any ideas or suggestions ? I am new at all this so I could not manage this project and would need to rely on experienced users. I could help but would need guidance on how to get the data out without it taking forever and getting them 10 stations at a time for a zip code.
Anyone else think the Chevron project would be a good one to start ?
I added a POI with 394 entries for Southern CA.
Thanks bbengr.....anyone else ?
I would be nice to have a Chevron listing. As an owner of a BMW motorcycle, I need Techron to help protect my fuel system from that nasty alcohol that the US seems to thing must in our gas. IT ruins BMW fuel systems.
I had to search the net for a file on the White Spot restaurants in BC for my last trip there. I found at the same site a Chevron file for BC.
There is also a file there for Chevron in the U.S. with 1769 entries.
The files are at poifriend.com. This not to push the "competition", so to speak, but all desired files will not be at one site, despite our wishes and hopes.
Have a nice day. H.
It would be great to have a Chevron POI, if there is anything I can do to help please let me know!
If anyone is still looking for a Chevron POI I have one with 8500 stations that I will gladly upload to the site.
Every time you fill up your car you can avoid putting more money into the coffers of Saudi Arabia . Just purchase gas from companies that don't import their oil from the Saudis. Nothing is more frustrating than the feeling that every time I fill up my tank, I'm sending my money to people who I get the impression want me, my family and my friends dead.
The following gas companies import Middle Eastern oil:
Shell....................................... 205,742,000 barrels
Exxon /Mobil..........................130,082,000 barrels
Marathon/Speedway.............. 117,740,000 barrels
Amoco.................................... 62,231,000 barrels
And CITGO oil is imported from Venezuela who is Dictator Hugo Chavez hates America and openly avows our economic destruction! (We pay Chavez's regime nearly $10 Billion per year in oil revenues!)
The U.S. Currently imports 5,517,000 barrels of crude oil per day from OPEC. If you do the math at $100 per barrel, that's over $550 million PER DAY ($200 BILLION
per year!) handed over to OPEC, many of whose members are our confirmed enemies!!!!! It won't stop here - oil prices could go to $200 a barrel or higher if we keep buying their product.
Here are some large companies that do not import Middle Eastern oil:
Flying J.........................0 barrels
Murphy Oil USA *.............0 barrels *Sold at Wal-Mart <
Target; , gas is from South Arkansas and fully USA owned and produced.
*Not only that but they give scholarships to all children in their town who finish high school and are legal US citizens.
All of this information is available from the U.S. Department of Energy and each company is required to state where they get their oil and how much they are
Velaro is also owned or run by Hugo Chavez,so is Shamrock,Diamond Shamrock and the one you mentioned above.Michael
Valero is a Texas Company. "Valero Energy Corporation is a Fortune 500 oil and gas refining and retail company based in San Antonio, Texas, United States. The company owns and operates 18 refineries throughout the United States, Canada and the Caribbean with a combined throughput capacity of approximately 3.3 million barrels per day, making it the largest refiner in North America. Valero is also one of the US's largest retail operators with more than 5,000 retail and branded wholesale outlets in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean under various brand names, including Valero, Diamond Shamrock, Ultramar, Shamrock, and Beacon.
Valero was created on January 1, 1980, as a spinoff from the Coastal States Gas Corporation. At the time, it was the largest corporate spin off in U.S. history. Valero took over the natural gas operations of the LoVaca Gathering Company, a defunct subsidiary of Coastal States Gas. The name Valero comes from Misión San Antonio de Valero, better known worldwide as The Alamo.
The company acquired a small oil refinery in Corpus Christi, Texas, in 1981, and began refining operations in 1984." For more details see Wikipedia.
I guess the name is misleading.
Please don't take this the wrong way HotTub, but the chain email you got your info from is not correct. Check this link: http://www.snopes.com/politics/gasoline/saudigas.asp
Looks like there is a bunch of different answers on the internet,both for and against what I wrote.Michael
I downloaded the recent Chevron file and am sorry to say that the first six stations listed were not even within 5 mines of a Chevron. I found many duplicates and a few triplicate addreses and none were close to a Chevron. I had to remove the file. Just wanted to let you know it was very inaccurate for the ones I checked.
Sounds like the folks who created this file just dumped in computer generated data without actually verifying the coordinates using google earth or some other program.
Creating a reliable POI file takes a LOT of work.
That would be great, because that is all I use in my car is Chevron... too bad the oil is imported from OPEC, but I treasure my car and from what I read on the net, it is definitely the best gas you can buy..
The bulk of the imported oil the US uses does not come from OPEC but it comes from Canada and Mexico.
I have found that the current Garmin map's built in POI Chevron database seems to be pretty accurate and complete.
Based on my travels for thousands of miles this last summer I never had trouble locating a nearby Chevron when I needed one.
