Who is a Spotter?
A Spotter is someone who uses the FillYaTank app to report prices and availability of petrol, Diesel, Kerosene and gas as sold in any Filling station.
How can I become a Spotter?
By pressing/clicking on MENU -> SETTINGS -> APPLY TO BECOME A SPOTTER -> CHOOSE A NICKNAME -> CLICK BECOME A SPOTTER BUTTON. If you receive a thank you message, then congratulations!! You are now a FillYaTank Spotter.
You can also go to our website, Click on FILLING STATIONS on the MENU -> on the left Side bar MENU, click on BECOME A SPOTTER/LOGIN -> Fill in your mobile number and nickname and click LOGIN.
How can I report prices and availability?
Open your FillYaTank app, GOTO Find Filling Station page, Find the location the Filling station you want to report for is in, press/click the location to GOTO Filling Station Listing page, for IOS users, press/click on the chosen filling station to GOTO Spotter Updates page. For Android users, press/click the name of the Filling station to GOTO Spotter Updates dialogbox
THREE SIMPLE STEPS:
• Find Filling station page (to find location of filling station)
• Filling station listing page (see list of filling stations in the chosen location)
• Spotter Updates page (To report prices and availability for a chosen filling station)
Please note that for when filling station is not open, every product (Petrol, Diesel, Kerosene and gas) can be updated as “Not Available”. And if a particular product is not available, and others are, you can put in – 0.0 for price and Not available.
Why should I Spot?
Because spotting will help everyone save money and time buying Petrol, Diesel, Kerosene and gas. You also earn points spotting which can be used to qualify to win ₦3000 everyday on FillYaTank.
How does the Point System work?
For each report or update of a Filling station, a Spotter earns 200 (two hundred) points. You can only earn 1000 (one thousand) point in a day by updating 5 (five) times. You can still update or report after the fifth time, but points will not count anymore for that day. If A Spotter hits the daily 1000 point, Spotter Current Points will be added to Accumulated points and the Current Points will be cleared at the end of the day to get ready for the next day for spotting.
If a Spotter doesn’t hit 1000 points in a day the Current Points will not be cleared, until the Spotter hits 1000 points.
Spotter Accumulated Points are used to earn Badges. So for every 360,000 (three hundred and sixty thousand) points earned, a Spotter is entitled to a ranking badge.
What can I do with my points?
If by the end of a day, your Current Points hits 1000 points, you will qualify for a draw to win ₦3000 for that day.
Rank badges can be used to input Filling stations into our database and/or edit filling stations in our database through the FillYaTank app. Spotter earns 500 points for each Filling Station input or edit.
Where do I go to see my points?
To see your points GOTO MENU->SETTINGS and you will see your Current Point and Accumulated Points.
What happens when someone report the wrong price?
We will be monitoring Spotters to prevent discrepancies. But unfortunately as the number of spotters grow and the number of updates grows, it will not be physically possible to prevent every discrepancy, we do attempt to remove any information that is obviously wrong.
Our goal is to get tens of millions of people posting fuel prices and availability. Once that happens, prices will rarely be out of date or inaccurate.
If you notice inaccurate price on FillYaTank, please update it with the current price for everyone else in your area to see.
You can send a complaint or report a Spotter if you notice, they are abusing the app by reporting the wrong prices or availability just to get into the draw to win or for any reason. Just take down their nickname, the filling station, area, town updated and send us an email with your complaint/report.
How is the daily draw conducted?
We have a daily draw on FillYaTank. The winner is selected by a random draw, acquired with points. After the draw, the winner will be contacted to claim prize and the winner will be announce on our Social media platforms.
As the number of Spotters grow, Spotters will not automatically enter draw when they hit their daily one thousand. They will have to enter the draw themselves by generating ticket. More information will be passed when we start implementing the “ticketing draw”.
