Hello. I love the mobile app, but lately whenever I try to post a list of prices, no matter the diesel price I enter, it says, "3.81 (or whatever number I input) seems high! Are you sure this is the correct price?" Then you have to go through an extra step to confirm.

This must be a glitch because prices were higher before and it didn't do this. Any thoughts?

Thanks.

I agree with the app, the price of diesel is too high!

Gasoline as well.....

I have found that one particular station always has the highest diesel price in town but it rarely changes and is a nuisance when I enter the same price that the previous poster put in there and I get that price seems high are you sure but it has saved me a couple times when my thumb has hit the wrong button I only wish that when the price matches the previous posted price it would allow it

I don't mistype prices very often, but still the feature has correctly caught such mistakes *much* more often than it's triggered for a correct price (in my personal experience). I'm happy to keep it. But fixing what it's comparing against would still be a worthwhile improvement, of course.

Interesting...thanks for your thoughts on this. It seems like it would be an easy fix.

I think this is one add on that should be deleted. Its not been right yet except when fat fingering a number. Which is pretty rare.

Based on previous reports, it seems likely that the feature is using the price of *regular gas* as the standard when deciding what's too high. So, if 3.81 would be a suspiciously high price for regular, then it flags it even though it might be within range for diesel.
