Slightly better than their one on google maps (.co.uk url, not .com).

Plan a route, hit the icon with a petrol pump symbol and labelled "gas".      Result is a display of all central heating engineers and bottled gas suppliers on route.

Mr Google, please note that here in the UK we call it fuel, whether petrol/diesel/LPG/electrickery/Ginsters, and if route planning then this is what we require.  I do not need your algorithms to search for the Americanisation of what you call petrol and presume I need a central heating boiler fitted to my motorbike.

I recall an old Devil's Dictionary of Data Processing, which defined recursion as "See Recursion" and endless loop as "See Loop, endless" and you can guess the rest.
