Waze helps you save on gas, every time you fill up. Navigate to the cheapest station on your route, all powered by community-shared gas prices. By working together to report prices at the pump, Waze drivers can always save some gas money.

The app is free but it works with a sensor. You need to buy this sensor. The device starts as low as $10. The sensor connects any car model made in 1996 or after. One time self-installation - no mess, no mechanic, no problem. One of the important features of this app is that it helps you track your miles. As a Lyft driver, miles driven for work can be deducted from taxes. In terms of mileage self-employed people have access to the highest deduction rate and fewest restrictions.
