Tankerkoenig


The tankerkoenig platform allows you to monitor the fuel prices with tankerkoenig.de from within Home Assistant and setup automations based on the information. To use this sensor you need an API key from tankerkoenig. Go to tankerkoenig API and click on API-KEY in the top right, fill out the form and request a key. The API is free, but requests should be limited to less than once every 5 minutes.
