Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.

App Reviews

  • Save A Bundle!!!

    By 4DD317
    I’ve been using GasBuddy for over a year now and I usually buy Shell gasoline locally. I love the way I can easily find the least expensive prices here in the city. I like looking at the Map of prices vs the list, myself. I’ve saved so much money with GasBuddy along with the Fuel Rewards card from Shell and the combination of the two have provided an even greater savings. GasBuddy is equally as beneficial when traveling and also provides great versatility of individual setup within the app, as well. I love Google everything, but, Apple Maps seems more user friendly to me and I love that when finding directions to a station out of town, when bringing up directions, it goes directly to Apple Maps (because of the options I have chosen). I have never had any technical issues or crashes as I have with other apps either. Thank you so much for saving me money and offering such a user friendly application!!! Keep up the great work, GasBuddy!!!
  • Thank you!

    By Kareve
    I just want to write a quick note of thank you to the developers of this app. You were a real lifesaver this past week down here in South Florida during hurricane Irma. I was frozen in terror of whether not to get on the road with the stories of all the gas outages. I have a toddler and couldn't imagine driving around town looking for stations and waiting in long lines. Once I read about your app and website online, I downloaded it. Within five minutes I found a gas station that still had gas and not too long of a line. I was able to make my drive up Orlando a little less scared knowing that I had you guys on my side. As soon as I got to my evacuation point, I used the app again to find gas before the storm hit so I was immediately able to get back on the road afterwards to get home. I can't say thank you enough! During an incredibly anxious and scary time, you made things a little bit easier and that means the world to me.
  • Love This App

    By Lakush13
    I have been using Gas Buddy for quite some time now and have experienced no issues with it. On our recent drive out of the state of Florida and then back in after Irma passed, our search for gas would have been far more difficult had we not had the Gas Buddy app. Kudos to the Gas Buddy team for quickly updating the app to include information about stations out of gas and out of power. For those dinging the app for having incorrect information, you have to know that the gas price information is provided by the app users and it is helpful to look under the price to see when that price was submitted. The older the submission, the more the chance that the prices have changed. The prices are not a guarantee, but it is still far better than having no information at all. And saving money on gas over time using this app is the biggest benefit. Thank you Gas Buddy!!!

    I really like this app for a long long time but lately you guys always update things changing the app now you’ve got things on here that has nothing to do with Gas Buddies this app is something to do with gas prices not my personal vehicle or car there is no need for all the updates that you guys do I’m constantly updating this app I like to report gas prices I really enjoy it but there is no reason for my personal vehicle to be on this app and all of the advertisements in between gas stations I just did an update this morning now I can’t Hardly find my points how to get on my points also leaderboard’s are for my area I have people on the leaderboard‘s that were in Chicago 500 miles from me that is not my area it’s not right or fair make this app fun once again to do as it used to be bring back the old Gas Buddies instead of adding all of this garbage to the app like your vehicle and other things there’s no need for it people want to check gas prices not their vehicle. Thank, snuffy 1963
  • Definitely worth it

    By App lover12345
    If you are on a budget or just trying to find the nearest gas station this app is perfect!! I love it, what a fantastic concept!! I would have given it 5 stars BUT there are only two complaints I have which are really not that bad. 1 they need to stop with the promoting premium features, let people use the app, it will market itself and people will want to buy the premium stuff. Stop trying to shove those features down our throats. And 2 it is pretty reliable but I've had some times where I'm going toward a gas station and I come across one that is listed higher than the actual price advertised on the board. I think this is just from a lack of people in my area actually updating the prices but the inaccuracies are definitely something that is a hinderance although it is tough to fix that. Overall it is a great app and really did execute the idea perfectly. Great job!!!
  • The app functionality is great, but an expensive caution

    By Falcon059
    So the primary function of Gas Buddy is great. Simple, intuitive, functional. It gets 4 stars from me, mainly because it could do a little better flagging Cash Only prices in various display modes. That’s really my biggest complaint on primary functionality. However I had a nasty surprise this month. One I feel compelled to write this review for. This app is a profligate data hog, and one that if you use on a cell phone you must be aware of. Last month I noticed an excessive amount of data usage in System Services. Largely Time and Location. On the order of 5.5 GB for the month, just for this. No usage, this was passive data consumption I could not turn off, or so I thought. At the start of the new billing period I reset my data statistics and did a test while driving. Over a 40 minutes trip, when the phone was not even touched and not in use, it used 96mb of data. This was all Gas Buddy using location services. If you say ‘yes’ to allowing Gas Buddy to using your location, it defaults to setting it to using location always. Not just while I’m use. This consumes a massive amount of data as you drive, one that can lead to nasty billing surprises on your cell plan. So turn off location services from ‘always’. I switched it to ‘only while in use’ and, magically, my data for the same drive today was .6mb. So very useful app, but please be aware of this to spare yourself the same $45 surprise I had last month.
  • Latest Update Not So Good

    By avidreader10
    Loved this app when it first came out. Wrote a glowing review. In the last few years it has slowly evolved to where ads are everywhere and they are gigantic. Take up more than half a page. It’s almost impossible to scroll to view info without touching the ads. This makes the app significantly more annoying and less usable. It takes much longer to find the info which used to be listed right in front of your eyes. Instead of. Simple list of the 10 nearest gas stations listed by price or distance you get one gas station, a giant ad which you have to somehow scroll past carefully without touching it, then another couple of small ads, then another gas station, another gigantic ad...etc. ridiculous! I realize the hard work of the developers deserves compensation but I would rather pay for the app than deal with the gigantic ads which are in your face. I’m on the verge of deleting this app from my phone. I’m sure someone can provide a more usable product.
  • They need to do something about the wrong prices and abuse by certain members

    By Skepdudeabides
    This app has gone downhill and it is a shame that they can not do anything about constant cheating and wrong information. I have been complaining to the support department at least 2 to 3 times a week for over a month or more now and not getting any response back. Too many members are cheating and getting away with updating wrong prices because they want to be the top spotter for a certain station. Multiple times a day I am seeing the same GasBuddy members updating prices for multiple stations that are miles apart from each other at the exact same time. The main problem with this is a lot of time they are updating the wrong prices because they have changed. I can’t depend on this app anymore to get the correct gas prices because of this. They need another app like this that doesn’t allow the constant cheating this one does. They should do a better job policing the members who are not visiting the stations themselves and who are posting the wrong prices.
  • Saved me $$. The .06cents less

    By Broncos 1 and 2 double J's
    Ay thanks for the findings of the best price near you/me in my need of fuel in the area of my location. I was low on fuel and funds$$. As every Penney was like a $1.00 for me and my son making an important meeting at U of M Kidney Transplant - To be evaluated and interviewed - tested ect. For my son to be evaluated to determine acceptance or denial for a placement on the waiting list to be a recipient for a kidney if one becomes available. This gas nubby put us in the best pricing and directed us to our nearest fuel station. This had saved us nearly $3.00 +. In cost. Yes, it may not seem to be the great to some people!!! However, this was able to pay for our parking at the University of Michigan for our meeting to be evaluated. Being on a low income every penny is of great value to survive !!

  • Gas Buddy

    By MacKrazyinKC
    I had wrote a review that was pretty good last summer when it was used for a long road trip. Have to change it due to updates. I had a problem with data usage on my plan and Gas Buddy showed up in my battery consumption list pretty high. I have not taken an out of town long distance trip for some time so I checked the settings for the app.I had it for cell access from when I used it a lot last year. The app went bonkers for usage this last billing period for some reason and I figured it was due to my stupidity. I locked down the app no cell service allowed and I turned off auto updates as well as I was not sure how often it was updating. Lo and Behold this AM I noticed an app updating this morning when I had not initiated a manual update and there was GasBuddy updating itself. I deleted the app. When you use this app it provides good info, but apparently - through other updates - it can not be trusted any longer. I dislike the crap it does on its own and can no longer recommend this tool.
