    It is possible that the ADAC fuel prices app no ​​longer exists because I cannot find it in the iPhone app store.

      Hello LeoP! I can find the app on my iPhone App Store. I just searched for "ADAC fuel prices" and found the app.

      • LeoP says:

        There are several fuel price apps on my iPhone 6s in the App Store, but at least not the one from ADAC. Maybe it's my device ...

        Thanks anyway for all the good information!

        • Sir Apfelot says:

          It could be that the app list depends on whether the apps support your current iOS. Some old iPhone models cannot use the current iOS 13.

    I have been using the “Mehr-Tank” app for years and am actually very satisfied with it. So far, I hadn't noticed any functional restrictions or subscription model?!? Now I've checked the app: I'm only promised free advertising for the “Premium” subscription, but no additional functions?! ?? Perhaps as an “early bird” I will still be able to enjoy other conditions ???
