    F.a.q.

    Frequently Asked Questions.

    Q. I don't have an Internet connection in my car, can I still use this.

    A.
    Yes, run this on your home PC (obviously you will need to be running Centrafuse on the PC as well), and then copy the stations.country file to your car PC (must be done on same day).

    Addendum : The saved files from RideRunner and the Standalone version (not yet released) should also be compatible


    Q. I put in a new postcode/zipcode but the stations haven't changed or updated.

    A.
    It is most likely the site does not have any stations near the postcode/zipcode you have entered or you do not have a connection to the internet.


    Q. I don't have any Fuel Station brand icons.

    A.
    If one or two are missing it may be new stations I haven't got the graphics for, email me the station name and I will have a look for it. Or you can look for a logo and send me the graphic file.

    Addendum, The plugin should check my site for any icons it’s missing, if it doesn’t find one it now automatically emails the names of missing icons to me.


    Q. You have done CFFuelPrices for the US,UK,FR,DE,CA,DK,FI,PT,IT,AT,IE any chance of doing it for <Insert Country here>?

    A.
    If you can find a website for your country that show the prices against individual stations, is searchable by postal code or GPS coords and doesn't show the price as a graphic, then post a link and I will have a look.



    Q. Would someone care to send me this?

    A.
    They can, but bear in mind you still need to register an account on my forum.


    Q. Anyone have a screen built for <Insert skin name here>? it would be greatly appreciated!

    A.
    check the skins thread, contact the skinner or you can try and convert it yourself




    Q. I have registered on your site but am still not activated, why?

    A.
    I do not monitor the forum registrations 24/7 so it could take hours or possibly a day or two before I can activate you. If I am going away I will normally put this info into the news section of the forum. If however after a few days of registering you have not been activated then contact me via PM on MP3Car.com.

    Using the same username as you do on MP3Car.com or fluxmedia.net will ensure you get activated.



    Q. I keep getting this error; error x or this function doesn't work?

    A.
    First, make sure you have read this document to see if it is covered in here, then check the whole of the release thread on MP3car.com or fluxmedia.net to see if the same questions has been asked before and more importantly answered before.
    If the problem still exists go to the settings screen and set Debug to true, do what you do to get the error. Exit Centrafuse, navigate to the Plugin data directory, and run 11ADebugCollector.exe. This should create a folder CFFuelPricesDebugs. Zip this folder up and send to debug AT en4cer dot co period uk with an explanation of the error you are receiving.



    Q. I'm having problems registering within CF.

    A.
    Login to my forum from Internet Explorer on the PC you are running the plugin.

    make sure you check 'Log me on automatically each visit'


    Q. This doesn't work for me what shall I do?

    A.
    First read the instruction manual provided. If the answer is not there I assume you have read these FAQ's? If still no answer, ask the question in this thread and/or email me with a debug.log to the email address in the manual.

    Q. How do I get a debug.log?

    A.
    Go to Settings --> Fuel Prices and change debug on. The debug log can then be found in the FuelPrices folder in My Documents. You will need to find where the Centrafuse documents are held in this, in XP it will be D & S-->All Users-->Application Settings-->Centrafuse-->Centrafuse Auto-->Plugins

    Do NOT under any circumstances publish a debug log on the forum.

    Country Specific Information

    Special things to note about the different countries.


    Non US users. If you are not in the US, do NOT select US. The site has blocked non US IPís so if you are not in the US it will tie up the Plugin and hence CF for a period of 2 minutes 30 seconds at a time.

    Non UK users. Only UK users need to enter a Username and Password.

    French users. If you enter an invalid postcode, the plugin will still search for prices, however the distance will calculated from the centre of the Postal District.

    UK Users See manual for a specific requirements

    Danish, Finnish, Austrian, Italian, Irish and Portuguese users. These work slightly different from the other countries. Here I have compiled a DB of all the stations, these are they sorted by distance and then only those within the range are then checked for Prices. Therefore the higher the range the more stations are checked and the longer it will take.

    Irish users. Because you donít have postcodes this will at present only work by using live GPS cords. I plan on implementing the use of Counties and maybe specific towns in future versions.

    How difficult would it be to add in E85 to the US list?

    Thanks

    The site that is currently used does not have E85.

    I know of an E85 site only but it doesn't make the data available in a way that I can work with.

    If you can find any sites that do provide prices for E85 with prices in text, searchable by zipcode then I will have a look.

    It cam also be downloaded from the App MArt, but unfortunately you will still need to access my forum to register.

    My Site is moving to a new server, hopefully should be back up within the next couple of days.
